Boston Tea Party Participant Commemoration: Kilkenny, Ireland

September 24, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Rothe House & Garden is delighted to welcome the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and Revolution 250 to commemorate Boston Tea Party participant and Kilkenny man, Thomas White with a ceremonial marker, as a part of their 250th Anniversary initiative, the Boston Tea Party Participant Marker Project.

Thomas White emigrated to America in 1771 and joined the Sons of Liberty in Boston. Until now, his participation in the historic Boston Tea Party has largely gone unmarked in Kilkenny, Ireland.

This year marks the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party and on Sunday, September 24th a commemorative event will take place in Rothe House & Garden, Parliament St Kilkenny. Rothe House is an early-modern townhouse that once belonged to John Rothe, one of the wealthiest merchants in Kilkenny. Built in 1594, Rothe House now welcomes guests from all over the world. In addition to guided tours of the houses and collections, Rothe House is the center for Kilkenny family history research and provides a genealogy service for those with Kilkenny roots. It is fitting that this is the location for this commemorative event.

The event will take place at 2pm on Sunday 24th September with a piper, costumed re-enactors, and remarks from several guest speakers.
