Confirmation & Communion in Kilkenny


It is the time of year when many children are getting ready to celebrate their First Communion or Confirmation.

The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated in various churches and parishes in the Diocese of Ossory this year, starting on the 15th January. You can find all  the dates for Catholic Confirmation in the Diocese here.

There are lots of shops and suppliers around Kilkenny to help you get organised for your child’s Confirmation or Communion day so here’s a list to get you started:

Communion & Confirmation Wear

For Communion Wear, tradition is the girls wear beautiful white dresses and the boys wear trousers and a shirt or a little suit. Have a look at our listings for shops stocking Communion Wear.
