Kilkenny City Mayor Sean O’hArgain joined with Members of the KKB to highlight and to also increase the level of awareness of gum litter and its responsible disposal. The attractive Court House plaza provided the backdrop to the event which took place during the Kilkenny Arts Festival. The Gum Litter Taskforce Eco cabs were in Kilkenny to circulate the campaign message with the theme “Bin it your way”.
Kilkenny marble colours our City.
Kilkenny City authorities and the OPW are to be complemented on the major renovation works undertaken at Kilkenny courthouse located on Parliament st Kilkenny. A New public space has been completed in the city core as part of the works diagonally opposite the historic Rothe house. The building was originally the 13th-century Grace’s Castle, which was given to city in 1568. It then became the County Gaol, continuing to serve as a gaol until the 18th century, when it was converted to courthouse use. This use continues up to the present day.
