Heritage Week - Brandon Hill

Brandon Hill
Heritage Week Hillwalk.

Over the past few years it has been the tradition that this is the first event in our hillwalking season – an 'Easy' walk on Brandon Hill.

The meeting place is Kilkenny Cineplex (11.00am), from where we travel to Brandon Hill using the least number of vehicles (car pooling). By arrangement it is possible to meet at other points (e.g Gowran, Graiguenamanagh).

It is important to be prepared for a day out on the hills by having suitable clothing/footwear and food/drink for the day out. The terrain is varied – forest roads, hill paths, rough ground.

In chapter one of 'Kilkenny History and Society' (Eds: W. Nolan and K. Whelan) written by Michael Gibbons is an account of some of the sites to be visited and they include: Bronze Age burial mounds, hut/house sites, enclosures, ancient field system and pathway.
