Kilkenny councillors to meet Boundary commission on Friday.

Waterford Boundary Review Area Of InterestWaterford Boundary Review Area Of Interest

Councillors in South Kilkenny hoping to stop a review of the county boundary with Waterford will have one last chance to make an impression on the Boundary Commission this week.

Members of the Piltown municipal district along with the Council Cathaoirleach Mary Hilda Cavanagh and Mayor of Kilkenny Joe Malone will sit down with the 3 man committee of David O Connor, John Martin and Ollie Killeen on Friday morning.

Thousands of submissions were made in Kilkenny to the commission before the deadline closed in January – just some of them can be viewed online on

Councillor Tomás Breathnach of the Kilkenny Labour Party said  its an important meeting on Friday.

However Kilkenny hopes are up now that the prime Waterford mover of the project , Paudey Coffey , lost his Dail seat and junior Environment  ministry, wherer he could have done ther most damage,  in the general election. And it would also be up to whatever incoming government to dispose of the matter as well. The large Kilkenny anti-government vote on the issue would have been noted too. 

These are all points in Kilkenny's favour and in the maintenance of the status quo ante.
