Tourist attractions such as St Canice’s Cathedral and Rothe House received a welcome boost last week, with confirmation that a temporary coach-parking facility is to be built on the northern side of the city.
Cllr John Coonan (FF) said it was a necessary investment to ensure tourists could access all of Kilkenny’s offerings.
“A coach park on the other side of the city is a gem,” he said.
“I’m delighted to find that there is a principle of dividing the focus, and not all converging on the Castle Road. Kilkenny City has something to offer from end to end.”
