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.
Calling all Kilkenny Secondary school students. We are trying for another All-Ireland, (because we all know you can never have too many!). This time its the Tidy Towns all-Ireland. Why not get involved by sending us a photo showcasing the bio-diversity of our city and have the chance to get yourself a 75 euro, 50 euro or 25euro All for one Voucher.

"You Think" Youth Group from Ossory Youth, Painting a site hoarding: Copyright: Keep Kilkenny Beautiful.
The KKB have received considerable help from Ossory Youth and their “You Think” Youth group. The current project includes the painting of hoardings on a derelict site located at Walkin street. This will improve the environment for the residents in the area. The group has a strong interest on what is going on in Kilkenny. They have a motto of “Think, Talk, Do”. the group is lead by Patrick Bookle Youth Leader.
