Kilkenny County Council to lose around 8 million euro from their rates income alone this year

Chief Executive of Kilkenny County Council says there will be a huge loss overall

Kilkenny County Council will be down an estimated total of €8m this year from their rates income alone.

That’s according to the Chief Executive in Kilkenny County Council.

The council brings in a total of around €18m each year in rates and Collette Byrne says the financial impact of Covid-19 will be significant.

She says carparking would bring in around €2.3m per annum, but this year that income will also be down.
