Kilkenny Ireland

Kilkenny, in southeast Ireland, has been a municipality since the Anglo-Normans arrived here in the late 1100's.

It was a monastic settlement before that possibly the nearest equivalent to urban development in pre-Norman Ireland.

Deemed a city in 1609 by King James of England, and retaining that distinction, Kilkenny is all the same a rather small municipality.
