Medieval Mile Museum, Kilkenny Photos

Located in a former private chantry chapel established (1560) by local merchants, many Catholic features were preserved when buried as the floor was raised to convert the structure to a Protestant church during the reformation. The Medieval Mile Museum has a fine collection of art of the era.
