The WWF Earth Hour was celebrated  in the Kilkenny communities of Melville Heights and Dukesmeadows on Saturday  the 26th March at 8.30 p.m. A large crowd of residents and visitors turned out to launch sky lanterns  into the night sky. The evening was still and cloudless.  The neighbouring houses has their lights turned off. The launched lanterns formed a constellation of star like globes rising into the still evening. The event was organised by Kilkenny Local Authorities Environmental section  in conjunction with Keep Kilkenny Beautiful and promoting a sustainable future in harmony with nature  for all in our City.
