• A Heritage Talk on St. John’s Parish, Kilkenny

    With Peter Kenny
    Wednesday 26th February, 1pm

    Historian Peter Kenny, a guide at Kilkenny Castle, will share a research paper on St. John’s Parish, elaborating on the fascinating story of the St. John’s Priory site which later became a military barracks and then the site of Evans’ Home.  Kenny’s talk will refer to much of the history cited in the exhibition A Most Favourable Soil as both the context for the show, and the concept of ‘fertile ground’ for the Butler Gallery move across the river to the Evans’ Home in Spring 2020. This will be our last public event at Kilkenny Castle before we relocate.
