About Us

About Let’s Team Up to Clean Up, Together for Kilkenny

Meet the dynamic team behind Kilkenny’s most ambitious clean-up initiative! In 2022/23, the former Chief Executive of Kilkenny County Council sparked the ‘Let’s Team Up to Clean Up, Together for Kilkenny’ movement, rallying private sponsors and public support. Now, the new Chief Executive Lar Power is taking the reins, building on its momentum. With financial backing from five corporate heavy-hitters – PANDA, Dawn Meats, TírLán/Glanbia, The John O’Shea Trust, and PRL – this 3-year initiative is transforming Kilkenny’s streets and green spaces. It’s a testament to the power of collaboration and community spirit – and it wouldn’t be possible without these dedicated leaders!”
