Bringing our Soldiers Home:
Throughout 2016 we hope to bring the crosses of our Kilkenny WW1 soldiers back to their place of origin. These are the crosses that we had on display in Kilkenny Castle in August and again in November. Thanks to the Johnstown Historical Society for organising the first of these this coming Saturday night, 23rd January, in Johnstown.
You are invited to come along on Saturday night to honour the memory of those from the Johnstown and Galmoy areas who served. The evening starts with mass at 7:30pm in St Kieran’s Church, Johnstown and after mass you are invited across the road to St Kieran’s Hall where there will be food and a display of WW1 memorabilia and information. The standards from many of the Regiments will also be on display.
