The KKB are proud to work with the St Kieran street traders to develop and promote the street which is located in the historic centre of the City. It is proposed to organise events during 2012 and showcase all of the best of Kilkenny in this pedestrianised street of cafes, restaurants, boutiques, bars, bookshops and hairdressers.
An anti litter week titled “Don’t Rubbish our Heritage” took place in Kilkenny City as part of Heritage Week 2010.
On Thursday the 26th of August the Kilkenny City dog mascot handed out HSE information leaflets and pooper scoopers to dog walkers along the Canal and Castle Parade. the aim was to educate dog owners in relation to the importance of the responsible disposal of Dog waste.
On Friday 27th of August we had extra cleaning help from Sheamus an enthusiastic street cleaner and his fox. Old and young alike were beguiled by the smart fox and silver tongued street cleaner. We thank Bui Bolg street performers who circulated High Street and St Kieran Street highlighting the importance of not throwing rubbish on the street and not stubbing cigarettes.
The City gardeners have presented a wonderful range of colourful flower displays through out the City. It is a delight to walk through our medieval streets and enjoy the blooms !
