His memory lives on in the beautifully preserved St. Canice’s Cathedral built overlooking the city in the thirteenth century.
Kilkenny, renowned for the superb and fully restored Kilkenny Castle is a thriving and cosmopolitan merchant city, who’s unique selection of historic sites and buildings from the 7th century onwards reflects a tradition of monastic settlement and gracious living.
