On the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, commemorations will be made to the Kilkenny soldiers involved.

Ar a lá cuimhneacháin 100 bliain tá comóradh á dhéanamh againn ar an bpáirt a ghlac saighdiúirí as Cill Chainnigh i gCath an Somme.

In this, the year of its 100th anniversary, we remember those soldiers from Kilkenny who were involved in the Battle of the Somme during World War I.

From August 5th to 14th 2016, you are invited to visit a replica World War I trench which will be located outside Kilkenny courthouse. Also displayed will be 126 small crosses dedicated to the memories of every Kilkenny soldier who lost his life during the battle, along with a headstone representing each parish of the County.

On Sunday, August 14th at 3pm, the final day of the display, please join us onsite in an ecumenical service of remembrance which will incorporate flag raising and wreath laying ceremonies.

Ina chomóradh 100 bliain seo cuimhnímid na saighdiúirí siúd a bhí páirteach i gCath an Somme le linn an Chéad Chogaidh Domhanda.

Ó 5 go 14 Lúnasa 2016 beidh cuireadh á thabhairt duit cuairt a thabhairt ar mhacasamhail trinse de chuid an Chéad Chogaidh Domhanda a bheidh lasmuigh de theach na cúirte Chill Chainnigh.
Ar taispeáint freisin beidh 126 cros bheag tiomnaithe do chuimhne gach saighdiúra de chuid Chill Chainnigh a fuair bás le linn an chatha agus beidh cloch chinn ann ag seasamh do gach paróiste de chuid an Chontae.

Dé Domhnaigh 14 Lúnasa ag 3pm, lá deiridh an taispeántais, bí linn ar an láthair le do thoil i seirbhís Éacúiméineach tráth a bheidh searmanais ardú brataí agus searmanas fleascleagain ar siúl.
