Kilkenny Castle is the centre of the City of Kilkenny, the first castle was built by the Anglo-Norman Leader 'Strongbow' Richard de Clare. He played a leading role in the Norman invasion in Ireland, he had the most success as he was not just a soldier but also a politician. He married the Aoife (ee-fa)the daughter of the King of Leinster and on the death of her Father succeeded him.
These shots were taken at the back of the Castle from the Canal.
Just after sunrise, I would have taken some more pictures as it is a stunning Castle and open to the public but alas I had work to do.
