Congratulations to all who worked together to plant some 1000 native trees at Bishopsmeadows in Kilkenny. The weather was ideal, on the day with spring warmth! The planting was sponsored and coordinated by Tree Services Ireland who have an aim to plant 2 trees for every tree removed. The work was undertaken by a large number of volunteers working with KKB and local residents.
Kilkenny has been nominated the prettiest town in Europe 2017 by the Japanese Association of Travel Agents (JATA). Kilkenny was number one of 30 towns from throughout Europe. The citation noted:
On the banks of the River Nore in the province of Leinster, Kilkenny is often referred to as a city though it is the size of a large town. Its heritage is on display in the form of Kilkenny Castle, St Canice’s Cathedral and its medieval walls.
Keep Kilkenny Beautiful congratulate all who have worked to keep our City beautiful and pretty for our citizens and visitors.
