In America they have Independence Day; Australians celebrate Australia Day and let us not forget here in Ireland, we have our very own St Patricks Day! All national days of celebrations and reasons for us to get out and explore the very best cultural and heritage experiences that surround us. Well, let us introduce you to ‘Kilkenny Day’, a day dedicated to everything that is great about Kilkenny!!
The first Kilkenny Day will take place on Sunday 11th October and will consist of a packed programme of events that will run across the city and county, showcasing the very best the county has to offer. But before we give you some of the line-up of events, let us remind you that people are been asked to don black and amber on the day to demonstrate pride in the county colours, so whether it’s a GAA shirt or a colourful holiday shirt that’s been lying in the wardrobe, there are no excuses!!By Mary Morgan Fri 9th Oct
