Talbot’s Tower and visitor area conservation has been completed. it is now a wonderful place to visit. There are a number of interpretative displays also. Native planting has been selected to complement the seating areas. The tower was an important part of the medieval defensive walls of our City.
Many thanks to Statestreet Bank for volunteering to undertake a comprehensive summer clean with KKB of the historic St Maul’s graveyard, this including cleaning, painting trimming and digging! The grave yard is a quiet haven within a bustling city.
An extensive balsam removal scheme in the Kilkenny area river Nore and Breagagh on a phased basis has completed its 4th year. The aim is to remove plants before flowering and prevent seed being produced for the following year.
The banks all through our City have been restored to attractive riverside woodland. Balsam is an invasive weed which can push out the native species of plant leading to damage of river banks in the winter. While removing Balsam on the river bank it has been possible to see much of the river wildlife.
