Kyteler's Inn Kilkenny

The restored home of Alice Kyteler, the Kilkenny witch. She was married several times and her husband's seem to die soon afterwards. She may have been Ireland's first female serial killer and had friend's in high places who helped her escape the Norman colony to Dublin, where she vanished from the pages of history. Her maid, Petronilla of Meath, was less fortunate and was burned at the stake in 1324.  For more check out my chapter on Irish witches in my latest book "Fadó Fadó More Tales of Lesser-Known Irish History".
