The first bridge over the Liffey in Kilcullen was built in 1319. From that bridge grew the village of Kilcullenbridge, now known as Kilcullen, and it replaced the original settlement of what is now known as Old Kilcullen.
The picturesque town of Kilcullen, which proudly maintains a village community atmosphere, is now home to over 3,000 residents and over 6,000 in the wider community.
Many events have been organised to run throughout the year 2019 to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the building of that first bridge.
Continuing the celebration of Kilcullen 700, an Art Exhibition will be held on an Exhibition Trail throughout Kilcullen.
This exhibition displays exceptional pieces from local amateur and professional artists who have been invited to exhibit creativity in a form of their own choosing and this has been put together in this wonderful presentation of art.
The exhibition will be officially launched on Friday 17th May at 7pm at Crean’s Place, Kilcullen. All are welcome.
Kilcullen 700 Art Exhibition is, therefore, a showcase of art in many different genres, in a trail of premises throughout the town: Crean’s Place, Woodbine Books, The River Café, Kildare Credit Union's Kilcullen office, An Tearmann, The Final Furlong Café and Kilcullen Community Library.
Sincere thanks goes to the management and owners of each establishment who have welcomed and are displaying Kilcullen 700 Art Exhibition and also to Kilcullen Lions Club who have supported this unique project.
The Exhibition runs from May 17th to June 15th 2019.
The event is proudly supported by Kilcullen Lions Club
