Kyrl’s Quay

Coal Quay Fruit and Veg Garden

Thanks to a grant from GIY Ireland and Energia, we are able to turn a derelict site on the Coal Quay into a fruit and veg garden as part of the ‘Get Ireland Growing’ campaign.

These boxes, dotted around town and often covered in dirt, make a great blank canvas and can quickly bring colour to a street.
