Congratulations to all the pupils from Colaiste Pobail Osrai for all their hard work and their spring clean of the pedestrian and cycle way serving the Fairways, Beech Lawns, the Orchard and Pococke.
On 27th April, 16 first year students, with their teacher Caoimhin, picked up litter along the Fairways walk way. They were participating in Neat Streets, an anti litter programme for Secondary Schools. After 90 minutes 18 bags of rubbish and a trolley had been removed. Great credit is due to the friendly and enthusiastic students of Colaiste Pobail Osrai for the smashing job they did.
The entrance to the Riverside drive access to the Nore riverside walk looks a lot better today after the great spring cleaning work which has been completed. We thank the support of the Presbyterian Church in Kilkenny who came out in large numbers to work for the community. their aim is “Faith in Deed”, what a great way to do it!
Kilkenny has achieved a No.1 result again in the latest Ibal survey .
This result reflects the hard work put in by the City Authorities and all our Voluntary groups over the last number of months. The assessors noted;
“Kilkenny has cemented its position as Ireland’s cleanest city – all sites surveyed got the top litter grade. What sets Kilkenny and other continuously high ranking towns apart is not just the lack of litter but the efforts put into the presentation of the environment e.g. High Street had beautiful new paving and a couple of years ago the approach to Kilkenny Castle was redesigned. The surveyor noted that Kilkenny Train Station (Interior) was almost museum like with historical photographs / notices – a lovely feature.”
