Who we are
Urlingford has always had a committed and ambitious community who want their town to thrive. The recently established Urlingford Town Team comprises a number of people who have come together on a voluntary basis, in response to a request from Kilkenny County Council, to work with the Council to tackle current challenges and to make Urlingford a place where people want to live and work.
How it started
Beginning in May 2021, Kilkenny County Council working with Turley Consultants carried out a series of online workshops where the entire community of Urlingford had the opportunity to discuss what they wanted for Urlingford. The objective was to do a health check on the town of Urlingford and produce a Town Plan that would assist the local community in developing the town of Urlingford. Part of that plan was the set up of a Town Team, a group of interested people that would take the town forward with the assistance of the Town Plan. The first meeting of that group was in June 2021.
How it's going
We have a number of active projects that are at various stages of development. To find out more have a look at our projects' page.
We very much welcome welcome new members from the community who are interested in working with us to deliver the goals set out in our Strategy document.
The Urlingford Town Team's vision is of an Attractive, Safe, Prosperous, Inclusive, Respectful and Empowering Urlingford Town, one in which everyone is proud to grow up and grow old.
