The objective of the State centenary commemoration programme for the years from 2019 – 2023 is to ensure that this period in our history, including the Struggle for Independence, the Civil War, the Foundation of the State and Partition, is remembered appropriately and sensitively.
Kilkenny County Council Library service is proud to be associated with this initiative.
Our endeavours are supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Decade of Centenaries 2012-2023 initiative.
Initially a selection of sites associated with this period have being photographed, this collection will be expanded over the coming months.
You can view this collection on the Kilkenny Digital Archive platform
