Walking Tour of Kilkenny’s Volunteer and Military Heritage:

This tour will assist in understanding the events attended by many of those national figures who visited Kilkenny during the build up to the Rising and the aftermath – personalities such as Casement, MacNeill, MacDonagh, Redmond, Cathal Brugha, W.T. Cosgrave, DeValera – all held meetings in Kilkenny, and the landmark buildings still survive – City Hall, Market Yard, Kyteler’s Inn, etc. The walks are held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 3pm. Meet at the Tholsel, High Street.

Kilkenny ParkRun:

It is a 5km run – it’s you against the clock. Every Saturday at 9:30am. The event takes place at Castle Park and it’s free! but please register before your first run. Only ever register with parkrun once.
