Kilkenny's top Cats in line for statue honour

The country's most successful hurling county is to erect a statue to commemorate all players who have lined out for Kilkenny.

Plans for a hurling monument in Kilkenny city moved forward this month again, with the decision of the borough council to proceed with a procurement process.

The idea was first mooted in Kilkenny by local Fianna Fail councillor Joe Reidy in 2009 after the 'Cats' won the four in a row.

Cllr Reidy informed the council members this week that the Municipal Policy Committee had now recommended the move.

The Parade in Kilkenny City is the likely location for the monument. To date Kilkenny have won the All-Ireland 33 times, winning six out of the last seven titles.
