The Kilkenny Horticultural Society was certainly in full bloom on Thursday the 24th of April when a fine exhibition of silverware belonging to the society was unveiled.The temporary exhibition, in Rothe House & Garden, showcases a number of awards presented and won by the society over the years of its existence and is a stunning example not only of the history of its members, but also of many years of hard work and dedication.
The exhibition marks the official handover of the Horticultural Society’s Silverware and archives to the Kilkenny Archaeological Society. It was curated by Ms Rosemary Barnes of the KAS and was greeted by a large and jubilant gathering of past and present members of both societies.
The MC for the event was Mr David Hughes, Vice President of the KAS and the gathering was addressed by Mrs Clare Bourke and Mrs Ann Coady, Secretary and Chairperson of the Horticultural Society respectively.Both Mr Pat Nolan, Chairman of the KAS, and Rosemary Barnes also spoke.
