‘Kilkenny Day’: Exciting new initiative to showcase city and county

A dedicated day to celebrate all that is unique about Kilkenny, from our local communities, heritage and environment to our internationally renowned food and hospitality will take place next month as part of a new initiative to showcase the very best the city and county has to offer.

‘Kilkenny Day – embrace our place’  takes place on Sunday, October 11 and will consist of a packed programme of events that will run across the city and county.

Devised by Kilkenny County Council, Kilkenny Day will be supported by a proactive digital media campaign, in which a number of competitions and information on the various events will be highlighted on dedicated ‘Kilkenny Day’ social media platforms.

A key element of the day will be that communities are encouraged to wear black and amber on the day to demonstrate pride in the county colours.

Among the many other events to take place include: ‘Ring Those Bells’ – a mark of appreciation to all the frontline workers’, where all churches, chapels and places of worship will be asked to ring their bells at 3pm;  ‘Let’s Taste Kilkenny’ – restaurants and eateries tailoring their menus to promote the culinary history of the county; ‘Know the Nore’ –  an environmental event where people get to explore and clean up the river at the same time; Own Your County – Know Your County’ – free admission to many of the county and cities best loved tourist attractions, guided walks through some of the city’s best loved gardens and courtyards; as well as many more events.

The Cathaoirleach of Kilkenny County Council, Cllr Andrew McGuinness, said: “We are delighted to be launching Kilkenny Day, this initiative is an extension of the many campaigns the county has in recent times to promote tourism and rediscover all that is wonderful about Kilkenny. It is also a celebration of everything that is positive and resilient about our county and pride in our people, communities and our surroundings.”
