The Church of Ireland church of Saint Brigid in Stillorgan, once a village on the outskirts of Dublin, is where Sir William Orpen (see yesterday) was baptised. His father Arthur Herbert Orpen was honorary secretary to the select Vestry for fifty years. Neither is buried there but on a visit there yesterday I did get a chance to look at the adjoining cemetery.
