KKB Awards is an annual celebration and recognition of the great efforts and work undertaken by many of our community throughout our City. Kilkenny City achieved an excellent score of 337 in the 2018 National Tidy Towns competition, just 2 points behind the National winner Listowel Co Kerry .

During  the summer 2018, KKB judges were  out and about in Kilkenny City assessing commercial premises and residential estates.

As in previous years there is no requirement to register.

The 2018 Awards were announced on the 16th October 2018  and took place at the Spring Hill Court Hotel.

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.
