Nice to do....and it's free

Many people welcome the opportunity – and reason – to get out and about on Saint Stephen’s Day afternoon. One good reason is the series of Walking Treasure Hunts organised by the ever active Kilkenny Archaeological Society. There are no less than three separate treasure hunts, all on foot, on offer; one caters for younger children (perhaps with their parents); a second series of clues caters for most adults while a third one is aimed at those who feel the challenge of say Crosaire is not really taxing enough for them. And all three treasure hunts are free.

Just turn up at Rothe House in Parliament Street on Saturday from 2.30 onwards, collect the relevant sheet of clues and off you go. You have until about 4.30pm to complete the selected route following which all then meet in Bollards of Kieran’s Street where “all will be revealed.” The winners are toasted and the rest of us consoled.

It’s a bit of fun so why not get out and about and see how well you know your city or how good you are at observance of what is to be seen – if you look hard enough! Just turn up at Rothe House in Parliament Street from 2.30 onwards.
