A Kilkenny Blue Cill brings a beautiful finishing touch to any home weather it is traditional or contempory. For traditional homes it adds a touch of authenticity while for contempory homes it adds the warmth that only Irish natural limestone can bring.
This pure Irish natural material weathers beautifully in our climate. The tone, patterns and distinctive hue of Kilkenny Blue change constantly depending on sunlight or rain, bringing life and interest to the outside of your home in a most beautiful way. It is often said that after many years Irish natural limestone cills weather into a more beautiful cill.
