Update due to extreme dry conditions in Kilkenny City:
KKB took the decision to cancel the Private Gardens awards element of our Kilkenny City Annual Awards Competition for 2018. This was due to the unprecedented dry spell here in Kilkenny. Irish water had requested all to conserve water and there was a requirement to observe a hose pipe ban currently. All other award categories were not impacted.
The Private Gardens Awards will be reinstated again in 2019.
