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.
Go mbeannaithe Dia uilechumhachtach sibh, Athair, Mac agus Spiorad Naomh.
