Kilkenny Arts festival 2017 commenced in warm sunny weather. There were large crowds attending the many street events which took place during the opening weekend. Great colour was to be seen and the flower displays were fantastic. Congratulations to all!

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.”
Why not volunteer to help in the Tidy towns movement in Kilkenny City!
KKB members were recently at Supervalue Loughboy to display recent winning medals and to show the success of volunteer work through out our City. Leaflets about the work of Keep Kilkenny Beautiful were distributed.
