Commenting on the range of Mother’s Day gifts in Kilkenny, Chairperson of Kilkenny Tourism, Ciaran Conroy said; “There is no doubt about it, Mothers are under-appreciated superheroes, pulling off the impossible day in and day out on the home- and work -front. This Sunday is an opportunity to thank them for all they do throughout the year and that is why Kilkenny shops, hotels and restaurants have lined up a huge range of gifts for every type of mum. Whatever you choose, we hope she enjoys it!”
