A large group of Lions Club youth exchange participants joined with Keep Kilkenny Beautiful and Kilkenny Lions club to undertake a summer cleanup right around the city this Saturday morning. The group came to visit Kilkenny for the day and spent the morning with Keep Kilkenny Beautiful assisting on our regular 10 AM Saturday morning clean up.
The group who have come from all over Europe are spending two weeks in Ireland. They are assisting voluntary groups in various projects in the south-east.
Following our recent No.1 place in Ireland in the IBAL national anti litter competition, Kilkenny is looking really well and congratulations to all who are assisting in keeping Kilkenny beautiful.
TidyTowns judges are currently judging cities and towns throughout Ireland and it is important that we keep Kilkenny looking it’s best during the summer. Volunteers or groups who would like to assist can contact our KKB secretary at 086-1687553 or [email protected]

Congratulations to Statestreet Bank staff for leading a large spring clean action which took place on 17 April 2019. This action forms part of our spring “deep clean” action undertaken by Keep Kilkenny Beautiful with a concentration on removing of non-biodegradable plastics and similar materials which get blown under bushes and trees during the year. This is a serious issue for our environment as plastics do not decompose over time.
