Kilkenny (Cill Chainnigh, meaning "church of Cainnech") is a city located in south-east part of Ireland and the county town of the eponymous County Kilkenny.. It is built on both banks of the River Nore in the province of Leinster.. The city is administered by a Borough Council and a Mayor which is a level below that of city council in the Local government of the state although the Local Government Act 2001 allows for "the continued use of the description city". The borough has a population of 8,711, however the majority of the population live outside the borough boundary, the 2011 Irish Census gives the total population of the Borough & Environs as 24,423..

Lady Desart Bridge is a Pedestrian and Cycle bridge opened on Thursday, 30 January 2014. It links John's Quay and Bateman Quay between John's Bridge and Green's Bridge.. Lady Desart Bridge cost an estimated 600,000 euro to construct..Many pubs have Irish traditional music sessions..Kilkenny had a tradition of dramatic performance going back to 1366 when the Dublin company set up in Kilkenny. Henry Burkhead, printed a play in Kilkenny Cola's Fury, or Lirenda's Misery (1645), dealing with events of the Irish Rebellion of 1641 from an English standpoint. It was a blatantly political work with the Lirenda of the title being an anagram of Ireland.. In 1642, as a result of the English Civil War, Dublin Royalists were forced to flee the city.. Many of them went to Kilkenny to join a confederacy of Old English and Irish that formed in that city.. The Court in Kilkenny..Award-winning animated studio Cartoon Saloon is based in Kilkenny, in addition to the Young Irish Film Makers and Mycrofilms..Beat 102-103 is a regional youth radio station broadcasting across the South East..Newspapers have been produced in Kilkenny for centuries..There once were two cats of Kilkenny..Each thought there was one cat too many..So they fought and they hit..And they scratched and they bit..Till (excepting their nails..and the tips of their tails)..Instead of two cats there weren't any!.. psychiatrists say it satisfies the desire for phower..Those orders come to you from your Chief of Naval Operations..Where were you stationed, Captain, before you were picked up in transit?..
