A peaceful walk along the tree lined river Nore in September
The entrance to the Riverside drive access to the Nore riverside walk looks a lot better today after the great spring cleaning work which has been completed. We thank the support of the Presbyterian Church in Kilkenny who came out in large numbers to work for the community. their aim is “Faith in Deed”, what a great way to do it!
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.
