Kilkenny

2009.09.07

The River Nore flows through Kilkenny, that is John's Bridge

There was a medieval fayre happening at the castle on the Saturday, and although we intended to only have a quick look around the town in the morning, we ended up staying here for most of the day.

The castle has been beautifully restored to its former glory

We all took part in a drumming workshop, John played a bass drum (very nicely too, I might add) he even ended up in the local newspapers.

James played on the Big Bass Drum, and I got to play a Bodrhan. It was great fun, when we had all mastered our instruments, a piper came and we did a song all together, it actually sounded quite nice.

The next two nights we spent in Kilkenny, it is a beautiful city with two cathedrals, a castle, and several streets lined with restaurants and pubs, most of which had live music, we stopped at one pub and listened to 'The Kilkennys', 4 local chaps who were very good.
The Kilkenny Cats were playing Tipperary in the All Ireland Hurling final, and there were yellow and black flags and banners everywhere and a great atmosphere around the town. We enjoyed our stay in Kilkenny very much... (The match was yesterday and Kilkenny won, by the way)
