SAINT CANICE’S CHURCH OF IRELAND CATHEDRAL IN KILKENNY 03/05/2017
The present building dates from the 13th century and is the second longest cathedral in Ireland, after St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. Beside the cathedral stands a 100 ft 9th-century round tower. St Canice's tower is an example of a well-preserved 9th-century "Celtic Christian" round tower. It is dedicated to St Canice. It is one of only three such medieval round towers in Ireland that can still be climbed to the top, the other two being Kildare Round Tower in Kildare Town and Devenish Round Tower in County Fermanagh.
