A Heritage Audit of the River Nore Heritage Phase 1 was commissioned by the Heritage Office of Kilkenny County Council in 2009. It comprised the survey and mapping of all, the built, natural and cultural heritage of the river from Ballynalsee (Laois-Kilkenny border) to Ossory Bridge, south of Kilkenny City.
Information was gathered through a combination of data research, field surveys (including a survey by canoe) and consultation with local communities. The project was funded and supported by Kilkenny Local Authorities and the Heritage Council with support from the Heritage Forum.
