Iconic Irish Cities: Derry and Kilkenny

Derry was a major centre for 1,000 years before its name was changed to Londonderry. Its walls encircle stories of the Siege of 1689 and the Troubles of the 1970s. Kilkenny was St Canice’s holy city, the seat of the medieval Irish Parliament in the 1300s and in the 1600s a Confederate hub against English dominance. Part history, part travelogue, this session compares and contrasts two great Irish cities.
