Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Walk Oct 5th 2019
Kilkenny’s Medieval Mile – Update
Hi Folks, less than three weeks to go to our walk on October 5th. Nineteen people have signed up to take part which is great. Don’t forget, you can use any type of camera to capture images, from a phone to an old film camera to the latest digital camera, it’s entirely up to each individual to use whichever type of camera they choose. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the weather forecast in the days leading up to the walk and to dress appropriately on the day. Hopefully, the weather will be good. To date, ours is the only walk in Ireland for this worldwide event and so far there are over 700 walks registered tom take part. A further update will be issued in the coming days.
The Medieval Mile is a discovery trail running through the centre of Kilkenny city linking the 13th-century St Canice’s Cathedral and the 12th -century Anglo-Norman castle and featuring numerous medieval sites in between including the Tholsel (18th century), Kytlers Inn (13th century) and Rothe House (16th century) along with historic lane-ways linking streets. There is an intact round tower on the site of St Canice’s Cathedral where visitors can climb to the top to obtain panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside. Kilkenny Castle has a large urban park with walking paths for visitors to enjoy.
It is intended to explore the locations starting with the Cathedral and all points along the route to Kilkenny Castle. There are plenty of photographic opportunities along the way including old shop fronts and of course the people of Kilkenny
