Tree planting at the County Hall Keep Kilkenny Beautiful recently celebrated in cooperation with Kilkenny county council Irish National tree week with the planting of seven trees within the grounds of Kilkenny County Hall. The seven oak trees were a gift from the National Tidy Towns to Kilkenny City as multiple overall national towns winner and symbolise the seven signatories to the 1916 proclamation. The trees are located along a very popular walking route which leads from Kilkenny city centre along the River Nore East riverbank to Ossory bridge. The oak trees will add to the biodiversity of the area and create as they grow a wonderful habitat for many species of plants and insects and will also give cover for wildlife.
Our County Hall looks fantastic in the winter sun. Extensive work is under way on the attractive riverside gardens and paths. The River Nore walk also goes through the grounds. There is a free car park in the grounds at the weekend where you can start a wonderful river and city walk.
