Striking portrayal

It’s an eye-catching depiction of a Patron Saint of the city. Interesting to realise that the name Kilkenny originates from the Gaelic Cill Chainnigh, translated as Church of Cainnech, the latter known as Canice.

Sculptured in dramatic local limestone and now residing now far from the eponymous Churches, it honours a long-lived 6th century Irish missionary, priest and founder of monasteries.
