High street Kilkenny over a hundred yrs ago!
The Tholsel, High Street, Kilkenny
A view of the Tholsel on High Street in Kilkenny in about 1910. It was built in 1761 and has been used as a customs house, a courthouse and a guildhall. The name ‘Tholsel’ is derived from two old English words: ‘toll’, meaning tax; and ‘sael’, or hall, the place where tolls were paid. In 1756, the Capuchins built a house known as the ‘Poor House Chapel’ on Walkin (now Friary) Street just off High Street and not far from the location of the Tholsel. In 1848, the present-day Capuchin Church of St Francis was built on the same site. (Image Identifier: CA/PH/6/33).
