Nationwide in Kilkenny

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!river nore loop river nore valley pedestrian bridge

Riverside clean up!

The entrance to the Riverside drive access to the Nore riverside walk looks a lot better today after the great spring cleaning  work which has been completed. We thank the support of the Presbyterian Church in  Kilkenny who came out in large numbers to work for the community. their aim is   “Faith in Deed”, what a great way to do it!
