Celebrating Lionism in Kilkenny city and County. Congratulations to the Kilkenny Lions who celebrate their 50th birthday party this week. In addition to their many fundraising and service projects the Lions have also made time to work to Keep Kilkenny Beautiful.
The Kilkenny City Spring Clean continues. Tyndall Mountain Club members joined forces with KKB over the last number of weeks to Keep Kilkennny Beautiful. The results were fantastic! Clean ups included many bags of recyclable materials, glass and plastics.
If you are interested in our City and want to make a difference, why not contact Keep Kilkennny Beautiful and join our winning team!
Congratulations to the Kilkenny Sub Aqua Club on their 40th birthday!
A big celebration took place on 7th November 2015 at the club premises in Kilkenny. The Sub Aqua Club works very closely with Keep Kilkenny Beautiful in coordinating the clean-ups along and under the river Nore. The KKB was represented by KKB Chairman Peter Bluett at the event.

Kilkenny Sub aqua Club have taken our spring clean campaign one step further ! ….. with under water cleaning. Items washed down the river Nore in times of river floods get caught at the bottom of the river and can be a danger to swimmers, boating and to wildlife. Unfortunately there are also items such as bicycles, bottles, traffic cones and shopping trolleys found. The divers locate the items to be removed which are then marked with buoys. They are then raised to boats and brought for authorised disposal.

The Lions club Joined with the KKB to assist in a very successful clean up on Saturday 8th at 10.30am . The volunteers met at the Watershed car park just off the Boharnatownish road. The clean up was along the Ring road and lough boy areas of the City . The fantastic summer weather was appreciated by all !
The Sub Aqua Club did more than their fair share of helping keep their city beautiful with a huge effort from their members in cleaning up the river Nore during the week. Our river Nore is one of our city’s amazing resources and this group of dedicated volunteers collected much as a result of others not appreciating it. Throwing rubbish in the river does not make it disappear!!!!!!
The launch of two new gander landers went smoothly, the KKB thank McCarthy Brothers Building contactors, Kilkenny sub aqua club and Bird Watch Ireland for their invaluable assistance. A total of four gander landers are now in place both on the rive Nore and in Lakeside.
