Grave Memorials throughout County Kilkenny have people's names carved into stone and embedded in the landscape. Many of the memorials are to men and women who served in various armed forces and took part in actions, events and campaigns in Ireland and abroad. As we enter a decade of commemoration in Irish and European history Kilkenny County Council is collaborating with the military historians in the Stephens Barracks Military Museum and with Historic Graves to survey and publish grave memorials with a military heritage association in the county.
