On the first Saturday of October each year, photographers and enthusiasts around the world get out their cameras and meet up at a designated location in their town to walk around and take photographs, socialize, make new friends, win prizes, and be a part of a great cause during Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk™. The Worldwide Photo Walk® proudly supports The Springs Of Hope Kenya Orphanage, an organization that feeds, houses, educates, and empowers young orphans so that they can grow up to not just survive but succeed. We’re asking each person who participates to donate to help make a difference in these children’s lives.
No matter where you are in your photography journey, or what type of camera or phone you use, you can take part in this year’s event in Kilkenny!
About This Walk
The Medieval Mile walk is being led by Kilkenny Photographic Society – KPS member Richard Dwyer. The Medieval Mile Walk 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 laneways linking streets. There is an intact round tower on the site of St Canices 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.
