Riverside clean up!

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!

Sub aqua Club go to all depths to Keep Kilkenny Beautiful

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.
