Kilkenny is celebrating success in the latest Ibal report which gives Kilkenny the status of cleanest City in Ireland.  “Cleaner than European Norms”.  Overall Kilkenny came 2nd   in the country with Cavan achieving the No.1 spot.

Fishing on the river Nore

The river Nore flows through the centre of Kilkenny forming an attractive river wildlife and green area. There are a number of weirs and rock water falls which provides an attractive fishing area for our birds! There are a number of grey herons living and feeding along  the river Nore in the area of the City.
