Be careful where you walk at night in Kilkenny. Avoid walking along the river and off the beaten track. At weekends, John Street can be very dodgy.
In November 2006, the local newspaper carried an article on the lastest "craze" in the city. It seems local thugs have taken to lashing victims with whips.
Drive careful arround the RING of KERRY . The streets are very small and sometimes you must stop your car to let an other car pass .
