Great Irish Interiors: Kilkenny Castle (S2EP5 RTE One Fri 10 June 2022)



Kilkenny Castle: A look at how Mary Heffernan and her team are working to preserve, update, and revitalise the visitor experience at Kilkenny Castle, one of Ireland’s most beautiful structures. Built by Strongbow in 1173, the castle was later the ancestral home of the Butlers of Ormonde before being sold to the people of Kilkenny for £50, but by the 1990s, it had fallen into disuse.

Airdate: Friday 10 June 2022 at 8.00pm on RTE One.
