To celebrate the Launch of our 2013 New Year Tidy towns campaign the KKB are currently working with volunteers from many of our City’s over 70 resident associations to complete the planting of some 25,000 bulbs throughout our City. A bulb for each of our citizens. In the spring as the colorful flowers bloom we will be able to see the fruit of the extensive planting which has been undertaken over the the last few months. these include many Daffodils, Tulips, Iris, Anemone, Dahlias and Crocus.
There is still some late planting underway. If your Kilkenny City Residents association wants to help contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
An official tree planting took place at Castle Park on the 13th February. The Event was to honour the achievement of Kilkenny City in winning the overall Large urban Centre award for two consecutive years 2010 and 2011 in the National Tidy Towns Competition.
KKB chairman Mr Sean Leahy welcomed all to the event, Kilkenny Mayor Mr David Fitzgerald acknowledged the tremendous efforts made by Kilkenny City over the last number of years in Keeping Kilkenny Beautiful.

The planting of trees is a fitting gesture as part of the winter tree planting season.
