Kilkenny: Subjects to Citizens 1912-1923


A Kilkenny Education Centre Commemoration Project

The purpose of the Kilkenny: Subjects to Citizens 1912-1923 website is to provide local resources for schools around the era of the Decade of Commemoration.

There are many useful classroom tools referenced, which can be used in digital format with students. Local newspaper cuttings, advertisements, cinema, food, and transport methods, for example, all bring an insight into the tapestry of life during the early part of the 20th Century in Kilkenny.

Teachers can access a multitude of materials on the website which focus on history in a social and political sense; there is something here for every age group. Enjoy the journey and exploration through life in Kilkenny during the period 1912-23 as you work with your students on this important period in our local history.

We hope, also, that this wesite will become a valued resource for anyone with an interest in the rich history of Kilkenny City and County.
