Annual Excursion: County Kilkenny

Kells, located on the Kings River 15 Kms South of Kilkenny hosts two amazing structures, Kells Priory and Mullins Mills. The Augustinians from Bodmin in Cornwall founded the Priory in 1190. In form and content it would closely resemble what was subsequently built at Great Connell. Mullins Mills’ current structure was built in 1784 although similar mills had been in operation here for over 700 years.
Refreshments in Jens Coffee Shop in Mullins Mills on arrival followed by a guided tour of both facilities. Picnic in the grounds of the Priory. Evening dinner will be served at the Lord Bagenall in Leighlinbridge.
The coach, supplied by Fosters Coaches, will depart Toughers’ Car Park, Naas Road, at 9.30am.
Booking essential by Monday 6 July – please see form.
