The good news of the discovery of the remains of the Medieval house is ruined by the fact that Kilkenny County Council are planning to demolish it.

This Medieval Manse house is clearly an integral part of the St. Canice’s Cathedral complex. It ticks all of the legal boxes to qualify as a National Monument due to its historical, archaeological, architectural and cultural nature. An Taisce calls on the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to declare it as such without delay.

The Project

The Buildings at Risk Register is an unfunded project by An Taisce – the National Trust for Ireland supported and maintained by its voluntary members. The Buildings at Risk Register was put in place in response to a concern at the growing number of structures that are vacant and falling into a state of disrepair. The Register provides information on structures of architectural, historical, archaeological, artistic, cultural, scientific, social or technical interest throughout the country that are considered to be at risk.
