Orchids Bloom in Kilkenny

Orchids are a most beautiful but endangered flower. Kilkenny City  is working to protect its rare flowers and their associated habitats. It is wonderful to visit and see the orchids bloom again this year.

The area is protected from mowing by the Local Residents association during the summer flowering season.  This species may be the common spotted orchid (dactylorhiza fuchsii).  For more information or if you would like to assist in protecting our rare flowers, why not  contact the Keep Kilkenny Beautiful Committee.
