Crafting Kilkenny

Kilkenny Castle’s lawn was full of crafts people last weekend.  They demonstrated traditional building methods for visitors to see. I’ve included photos of a man operating a pole lathe and one of a man who thatches roofs.

Here’s a view from the Kilkenny bridge.  I took this on our September visit, but it was every bit as beautiful when I visited with Mom last weekend.
