The Historic St Mary’s Church graveyard was officially opened to the public by our Mayor on the 1st June 2012.

A detailed conservation plan for the graveyard was completed in 2003.  The opening of the graveyard is a step in the overall conservation plan for the Church and Graveyard. The church was founded some time before 1205 within  the historic core of Kilkenny City.

There will be tours of the graveyard available through out the summer 2012.
