Irish Business Against Litter win for Kilkenny City in 2019. Kilkenny is No.1 ahead of Killarney and Swords. Congratulations to all our volunteers and also to Kilkenny Co Co who have worked through out the year to help to achieve this excellent result. Our win is for a record 4th time.
This is the time of year for bare root planting of trees and bushes, planting winter bedding plants, being cruel to be kind with the trimming of bushes,moving / dividing plants around, annual cuting of wild flower areas, removing hard to get at blown non biodegradable plastic from under bushes and hedges (it’s about time that 25c is put on every plastic bottle, can , coffee cup etc so that they have a value) and countless other jobs…..
it goes on ….
Congratulation to all on the hard work undertaken by the National Enterprise Town Award committee who in turn were supported by many organisations and volunteers from through out our City, this included the Kilkenny PPN (Kilkenny Public Participation Network) and Keep Kilkenny Beautiful.
This is a fantastic achievement for Kilkenny, there were over 70 Communities in the running, Kilkenny were victorious in winning the overall prize at the Bank of Ireland National Enterprise Town Awards 2019 including a cash prize of €33,000.
This win is indicative of the hard work and dedication of many businesses and enterprises throughout the city but also our community spirit which is at the heart of everything we do. It is important that local enterprises and community groups are supported in their efforts to create jobs and a sustainable future for their communities.
