Long renowned as Ireland's Medieval Capital, the city's origins date back to more than 1,500 years ago. The great building prowess of the Normans is very evident in the 11th and 12th century building they bestowed on the city. Not alone in the large "set piece" buildings, such as Saint Canice's Cathedral, the great Butler Castle and the four medieval abbeys, but also the linear streetscape, especially the attractive covered slipways. In this generation a deep sense of civic awareness has been manifest in the centres success in the National Tidy Towns competition on no less than four occasions. Kilkenny City is the 1998 national entry for Ireland in the European Entende Florale Competition.
