City Walks


City Walks with KRSP


The Local Sports Partnership is an Irish Sports Council (ISC) initiative that was developed to “create a national structure to co-ordinate and promote the development of sports at local level”. The key aims of Local Sports Partnerships are to increase participation in sport and physical activity especially amongst specific target groups and to ensure that local resources are used to best effect. Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership (KRSP) will make every effort to ensure that sports or recreation become part of people’s lifestyles in Kilkenny as an outcome of this plan, with each person participating in an activity they enjoy to a level that suits their needs and improves their general health.  As a part of the Trail Kilkenny Outdoor Festival KRSP will be offering FREE City walks.
