- The Capuchins have been in Kilkenny since 1699 but the present friary was built in 1847. The altarpiece in the church is a notable painting of Christ after the crucifixion by celebrated Italian painter Guardachini. The Friary is also notable for having Kilkenny's only walk-in confession service. Ring the bell inside the front door and a friar will dutifully make his way from their living-quarters to listen to your sins.
