Murals in Kilkenny

Our city has had many creative and fantastic murals. These  are generally commissioned for specific  locations by Kilkenny Co Co, local businesses and voluntary groups  and also by Keep Kilkenny Beautiful. Repairs and cleaning of important murals is also undertake as required. This work in conjunction with a “spray it over” and “clean it off” policy has meant that Kilkenny has a very low level of graffitti through out our city.
