The Capuchin friars in Kilkenny, both past and present, wish to express their thanks to the people of Kilkenny, but also to those of the surrounding counties for their constant support in many ways over the last 350 years.


Their financial support has been outstanding: in 1985, when 100,000 had been raised for the church's restoration, the friars had to publicly ask the people to stop giving money as more than enough had been received. And in the previous November 5,000 was raised at one Sunday's Masses for famine relief in Ethiopia.
