On 8th September, it was announced at the Tidy Towns Competition Awards Ceremony that the Rothe Family Garden in Kilkenny has won both the Regional and National Landscape Awards for 2008. 


“The TidyTowns Landscape Award is a special competition sponsored by The Tree Council of Ireland to recognise the role of appropriate landscaping in Irish towns, villages and urban areas and its potential aesthetic and practical benefits to the local community.”

The Garden was nominated by the Keep Kilkenny Beautiful Committee and both awards carry a financial prize of €1,000. A presentation ceremony will be held at a later date.
