KKB are very appreciative of the extensive community work including painting, scraping, cleaning and beautifying undertaken by the Lions Club Kilkenny in conjunction with KKB over the summer.
Congratulation to the Probation office, supported by KKB and Kilkenny Co Co for the wonderful re-presentation of all three of our historic wells. There has been cleaning , painting, weeding, trimming undertaken and some planting also put in place. Further planting will need to await winter rains. A traditional whitewash was used giving a brilliant white finish.
