Kilkenny wild flower meadows

The Kilkenny wild flower meadows are starting to bloom.  The wild flower meadows both at Dukesmeadows and Bishopsmeadows are full of colour. The meadows are carefully tended and cut just once a year.   They form part of the overall river Nore Linear park and are an important amenity which follows the river Nore right through the city centre. The popular Linear park recreational area which extends for some 6km along the river Nore from Ossory bridge in the south east to  Talbots inch in the north west has attractive walks and pathways through it  and  cycle space is also provided.
