Sketching at Kilkenny

Kilmogue Neolithic Portal Tomb- 5k to 6k years old

Kilkieran Early Medieval High Cross- from around 1100 years ago

Ahenny High Cross, I ramped up the contrast so one can really see the designwork

The Neolithic Passage tomb at Knockroe- around 5k years old

The Late Medieval Kilkenny Castle

The view of Kilkenny from up on St. Canices Round Tower

Inside St Canices, a later Medieval Catheral in Kilkenny- built in the 12th century
Over the weekend myself and other sketchers from Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny, Laois & Sligo wondered around county Kilkenny and then in the city exploring its medieval heritage. Lovely part of Ireland, out in the county it has great prehistoric and early medieval monuments while at the city there is an incredible amount of medieval heritage there!
