Extensive planting of daffodils throughout Kilkenny are showing great colour this March.
Keep Kilkenny Beautiful has distributed a large number of bulbs for autumn planting by resident associations through out Kilkenny. We look forward to the added colour in Spring 2017.
elcoming the start of Spring!
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 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!
Wonderful colours at Kilkenny castle!
The wonderful River Nore walk between Kilkenny and Bennettsbridge was featured in the Irish Times. The trail stretches for 11 km and starts at Canal square under Kilkenny Castle. There is also a very attractive loop and board walk starting at Canal square. this extends as far as the new pedestrian bridge at Ossory Bridge and back on the opposite river side. This loop which meanders through a wooded area along the river Nore is c.5km in length. The City Loop was only completed in 2014 and it is already very popular with visitors.
A start can be made at Kilkenny castle. The walk is directly under the imposing castle.
