Budget: Kilkenny a ‘Living City’

Kilkenny will benefit from a new scheme allowing home buyers and commercial property owners to apply for tax relief on the refurbishment of historic buildings.

The ‘Living City’ initiative was extended to Kilkenny in yesterday’s Budget.

Local Fine GaelTD John Paul Phelan said it was exciting news for the city.

“It will see the city benefit from regeneration and an injection of life into the city’s historic,residential and retail spaces under the pilot tax incentive,” he said.
