Local Kilkenny projects to get funding from the Heritage Council

The Kilkenny Famine Experience and a Digital 3D Model of Medieval Kilkenny have been included amongst the local projects to get funding from the Heritage Council.

A total of 196 projects nationally successfully applied for a slice of the 800,000 euro on offer.

Locally, 5,000 euro is being granted to the Famine Experience in MacDonagh Junction, 2,500 euro is heading to a children’s summer archaeological workshop in Freshford.

The biggest allocation in Kilkenny is going towards creating a photo-realistic digital 3D model of Kilkenny from around the year 1640.

That project is getting 9,000 euro.
