Photographer's Note

Kilkenny Castle was built in 1195 to control a fording-point of the River Nore and the junction of several routeways. Remarkably the castle belonged to same dynasty, the Butlers of Ormonde from 1391 to 1967. Finally Arthur Butler, 6th Marquess and 24th Earl of Ormonde sold the abandoned and deteriorating castle to the Castle Restoration Committee for a ceremonial £50. The castle now belongs to the people of Kilkenny.

Western side of the castle has a rose garden, which obviously is more beautiful in summer.
