About this Project

Welcome to the Kilkenny Military Heritage Project – this project presents information about Kilkenny’s military heritage in an objective and historically accurate, inclusive and respectful way.  It is not intended to glorify war or death.  The project is a joint initiative between the Heritage Office of Kilkenny County Council and the Kilkenny Barracks Museum.

The project presents information about various aspects of Kilkenny’s military heritage – including military events that took place throughout County Kilkenny, establishment of military groups in the county, and about soldiers who were natives of Kilkenny city and county who served in action in Ireland and overseas.  This site also provides information and links to the Kilkenny Military Heritage and Historic Graves Project, which published grave memorials with a military heritage association in the county.
