Kilkenny PPN Plenary

Hopefully this will be the last online Plenary that Kilkenny PPN will have. We are very eager to have an opportunity to meet and greet once again and get back to being back on the ground with you again. Until then, we will continue to work with you and on your behalf to ensure that your voice is heard at policy level.

Kilkenny PPN has continued to work and deliver upon its objectives albeit differently than before. We will be hosting our Plenary online on Tuesday 15th of June from 6.30pm to 8pm.

We are delighted to have Minister of State for Heritage and Electoral Reform, Malcolm Noonan, TD; as our Guest Speaker on the night. We have some minor housekeeping to take care of this year and members will be asked to vote and formally ratify the new PPN representatives on the newly formed Steering Group for the Migrant Integration Plan for Kilkenny. See the below agenda for your attention. If you have any motions for consideration by our members, please send them into us by email on .
