Our Tidy Towns Committee was set up in 2008, and in that year, we secured a National
Special Endeavour Award for the project carried out at Condon's Corner.
In 2009 our marks improved by 34, the highest increase nationally for any village,
and for this we again received a National Special Endeavour Award.
We are delighted to say that Kilbehenny's results improved by a further 12 points
in 2010, proving that hard work and cooperation bring well-deserved rewards.
Fás workers and locals work together building stone beds, erecting hanging baskets,
maintaining flower beds and grass areas.
Bird boxes have been placed in strategic points and it's lovely to see the various
species nesting there.
The Mill River is a beautiful area of tranquility, where many visitors now rest their
weary bones, lapping up the peace and quiet.
The church grounds and graveyards, both old and new, are beautifully kept.
Each year since first taking part in the Tidy Towns Competition, we have gained points
and received many compliments regarding our new projects
Kilbehenny is a village to be proud of and we are grateful to all who helpin it’s
