Decade of Centenaries in Kilkenny


“Supported by the Department of Tourism,  Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Decade of Centenaries 2012-2023 initiative.”

The years between 1913 and 1923 witnessed many important events throughout Kilkenny and Ireland, which really did change the course of Irish history. Over the past few years, many commemorations were held to remember the centenary (100 years) of these events and the people that took part in them. The government has called this time; ‘The Decade of Centenaries’.

The Booklet below, created with our younger users in mind,  outlines some of the most important events that happened in Kilkenny City and County during this period.
