Extreme dry spell in Kilkenny City

Keep Kilkenny Beautiful Awards 2018.

Update due to extreme dry conditions in Kilkenny City:

KKB has taken the decision  to cancel  the Private Gardens awards element of our Kilkenny City Annual  Awards Competition for   2018. This is due to the unprecedented dry spell here in Kilkenny.  Irish water has requested all to  conserve water and there is also  the requirement to observe a  hose pipe ban currently.  All other award categories  are not impacted.

The Private Gardens Awards  will be reinstated again in 2019.

All three City Historic wells newly presented

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.
