The official opening of the last section of the M9 motorway took place on the 9th September 2010. The Keep Kilkenny Beautiful Committee were represented at the ceremony by Chairman Sean Leahy, Hon. Secretary Elaine Bradshaw and PRO Peter Bluett. The completion of the road diverts heavy traffic away from the historic Kilkenny City. It will also allow for safe access to Kilkenny via a c. 4 km access road directly from the Motorway to our City ring road.
