The Kilkenny Poster

The poster features St Mary's Catholic cathedral whose unmistakable silhouette sits at a height above the city. The famous castle is also featured. Built in 1195 for William Marshall, 4th Earl of Pembroke, it has dominated the "high town" of Kilkenny ever since.

The "Marble City" refers to the limestone or "Black Marble" quarried in the region
