by Jimmy Rhatigan

Féile Lachtain 2023 will be officially launched on this Saturday, April 15, at   3pm in Ionad Lachtain Church Arts and Heritage Centre, Freshford. 

The festival will be launched by Councillor Pat Fitzpatrick, Chairman Kilkenny County Council. 

The launch will be followed by the first lecture of the year delivered by Ms Siobhan Doyle, author of ‘A History of the GAA in 100 Objects’.

Her address will highlight the objects of Kilkenny interest in her book as well as focussing on some of the items from around the country which caught her attention. 

The book was nominated for Sports Book of the Year at the An Post Irish Book Awards 2022.

Féile Lachtain was started last year to promote St Lachtain’s Church of Ireland as a visitor centre. 

The church hosted a number of lectures, exhibitions and concerts. This year’s programme will be announced on Saturday. 

Harpist Mary Kelly will provide musical entertainment. All are welcome.
