Kilkenny City comes No.1 in latest Ibal survey

Kilkenny has achieved  a No.1  result again in the latest Ibal survey .

This result  reflects the hard work put in by the City Authorities and  all our Voluntary groups over the last number of months. The assessors noted;

“Kilkenny has cemented its position as Ireland’s cleanest city –   all sites surveyed got the top litter grade. What sets Kilkenny and other continuously high ranking towns apart is not just the lack of litter but the efforts put into the presentation of the environment e.g. High Street had beautiful new paving and a couple of years ago the approach to Kilkenny Castle was redesigned. The surveyor noted that Kilkenny Train Station (Interior) was almost museum like with historical photographs / notices – a lovely feature.”
