Smithwick Brewery, working in cooperation with the KKB, Bird watch Ireland and the City parks Department continues with the development of the city centre river Nore wildlife refuge. The completed river side tree planting, bird boxes and habitat is being enhanced by the recently launched floating bird lander. The river Nore ”left bank” is becoming an important wild life refuge and forms part of the river Nore and Breagagh linear park.
The launch of two new gander landers went smoothly, the KKB thank McCarthy Brothers Building contactors, Kilkenny sub aqua club and Bird Watch Ireland for their invaluable assistance. A total of four gander landers are now in place both on the rive Nore and in Lakeside.
