Kilfinane

4.6
Kilfinane is a small market town in County Limerick, Ireland. The Town's name comes from the Irish words "Cill" (church) and "Fhíonáin" (Finian), making its meaning "Church of Saint Finian." Kilfinane is located approximately 40 km southeast of Limerick, and approximately 70 km north-northwest of Cork. It had a population of 778 people in the 2011 Census.At an elevation of over 150 metres, Kilfinane is the highest town in County Limerick. It is surrounded on three sides by the Ballyhoura Mountains, and on the fourth side is the "Golden Vale" region that runs through Counties Limerick, Cork, and Tipperary.In 2014, Kilfinane hosted the inaugural HearSay International Audio Festival which celebrates creative audio from the worlds of Radio Features, Film Sound, Theatre and Sound Art. The second HearSay Festival held in November 2015 had over 80 workshops, installations and performances. It attracted audio makers from 25 countries.EducationKilfinane facilitates both Primary and Secondary Education.Kilfinane Primary School Scoil Fhíonáin is located very close to the Secondary School and has a new building opened in September 2012. Prior to this the Primary School was located in an old former Catholic residence, which was notorious due to reports of infestation, cold conditions and outdoor toilets. In November 2012, disputes amongst building subcontractors and the main building contractor of the new School resulted in builders cutting the power and water, and removing the fittings of the newly opened school building. Parents created a blockade to prevent the builders from leaving the school grounds. The standoff became a national news story. An RTÉ Radio 1 radio documentary "Take No More" by Grey Heron Media on the standoff won Gold at the 2013 PPI Radio Awards, the 2013 Association for International Broadcasting, and the 2013 New York Radio Festival.
