Keep Kilkenny Beautiful were very pleased to welcome Mary Kennedy and the Nationwide team to Kilkenny.
Some of the many attractions of our Beautiful city were visited. This included the wonderful boardwalk and the river Nore linear park part of which extends from Kilkenny city centre out to Ossory pedestrian bridge. The walk forms a loop along both river banks and is very popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists. There is also a branch of the walk all of the way to Bennettsbridge along the river Nore.
The Nationwide programme on Kilkenny is planned to be broadcast by RTE1 on Wednesday 14th September, do not forget to tune in!
This year there has been a wonderful display of rare orchids at Melville. Congratulations to the resident’s association who are not undertaking grass cutting in their bee / pollinator friendly green spaces.
Our County Hall looks fantastic in the winter sun. Extensive work is under way on the attractive riverside gardens and paths. The River Nore walk also goes through the grounds. There is a free car park in the grounds at the weekend where you can start a wonderful river and city walk.
