Annual Awards competition



Keep Kilkenny Beautiful Awards 2018.

Update due to extreme dry conditions in Kilkenny City:

KKB have 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 a  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.
