River Nore Heritage Audit 2009

Action No.8 of the Draft County Kilkenny Heritage Plan 2007-2011 is to undertake a community based project on all aspects of the River Nore’s Heritage. Kilkenny Archaeology have been comissioned by Kilkenny County Council to carry out a heritage audit (built, natural and cultural) of the northern section of the river in Kilkenny, from Ballynaslee on the Laois border in the north to Ossory Bridge (Maudlinsland and Archersgrove townlands) in the south. The key purpose of the project is to raise awareness amongst the local community and wider society of the Nore’s rich cultural and natural heritage. In addition the results of the project will inform future planning, management and infrastructure delivery along the river corridor. As the project progresses updates will be given on this website.
