The words of Kilkenny County Council Cathaoirleach Mary Hilda Cavanagh to the hundreds in South Kilkenny that packed out the Rhu Glenn last night for a public meeting on the review of the county boundary with Waterford.

If the proposal comes to pass then 7 thousand residents of South Kilkenny would see their address changed to County Waterford.

At least 300 turned out in Slieverue last night to hear from speakers which included Dail Deputies John Paul Phelan, Ann Phelan and John McGuinness, local councillors and the chairman of Kilkenny county board of the GAA Ned Quinn.

Edwina Grace was there for the full night and spoke to some of those in attendance to get the feeling on the ground in south Kilkenny. Hit play below to get started.
