Born in Dublin in 1926, Moloney studied painting at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and at La Grande Chaumiere in Paris. She worked with Patrick Pollen at the Túr Gloine stained glass studio, and established her own studio in 1965. Her stained glass is in dozens of churches across Ireland and England, and she has also designed crosses, doors, altar panels and tapestries. She represented Ireland at the Salzburg Biennale, and has won numerous exhibitions prizes. ( http://aosdana.artscouncil.ie/members/moloney/ 25/04/2019 )
