Extensive planting of daffodils throughout Kilkenny are showing great colour this March.
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.

The colour in the city’s roundabouts can now be appreciated. the Ring road is a blaze of colour with each roundabout themed so that each is a unique experience. Roundabouts are also signed to aid orientation. the ring road forms a green parkway extending from the Waterford rd to the Castlecomer road. sections of the ring road have also been planted with wild flowers. The extensive city pedestrian and cycle way network has been completed along much of the route.
The roundabout planting also includes trees and permanent planting to provide colour through out the year. Extensive tree planting has taken place all along the city Ring road, providing screening and cover.
