Well done on the example set by volunteers from Kilkenny’s Presbyterian church. Get job done as always!
Only a few more weeks of clean-ups to go before Kilkenny City could win Tidy Towns (well we certainly think we deserve it!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Work has been recently completed in providing a seating and pedestrian priority area on Dean street adjacent to St Canice’s Church. Attractive paving and sets have been provided with Kilkenny limestone trims.

The Historic St Mary’s Church graveyard was officially opened to the public by our Mayor on the 1st June 2012.
A detailed conservation plan for the graveyard was completed in 2003. The opening of the graveyard is a step in the overall conservation plan for the Church and Graveyard. The church was founded some time before 1205 within the historic core of Kilkenny City.
There will be tours of the graveyard available through out the summer 2012.
