20 Cats answer Brian Cody’s call to support Kilkenny’s recovery
More than 20 enthusiastic local residents have answered Brian Cody’s call to play their part in supporting Kilkenny’s economic recovery.
It follows a recent call out by the legendary hurling coach’s for volunteers to join the Kilkenny Welcome Team.
The Welcome Team hit the streets for the first time over the Bank Holiday weekend, decked out in highly visible branded gear. The team operated in strategic locations in the city, meeting and greeting visitors and providing a warm Kilkenny welcome along with helpful information on opening hours to attractions, ATM locations and interesting snippets about the city and county.
The initiative is just one Kilkenny County Council’s innovative projects to support the reopening of Kilkenny in the wake of the pandemic.
The Welcome Kilkenny team were greeted by Brian Cody at a training session last week, which covered training in Covid-19 protocols and public safety and was followed by a walking tour of the various attractions around the city.
Kilkenny County Council chief executive Colette Byrne thanked the volunteers for supporting the initiative, adding: “You will play a key role in supporting the businesses and visitor attractions in their recovery following months of closure and hopefully support a late and potentially strong season of domestic visitors.”
