Speaking about his passion for Kilkenny and he encourages the people of the region to get behind the Bid. Tomm says, “I’m very proud to be living and working here in Kilkenny. Kilkenny has fantastic art and craft and music and filming making, it is a very creative region.
I was very lucky to grow up here. It would be fantastic to win this Bid, it would be brilliant for all of the creative industries here in Kilkenny and this region, we are a little hidden gem and we have music, comedy art and lots of different creative activities going on here and I think its going to shine a spotlight on all of those and open up a collaboration and cross pollination with out European partners. It would be really fantastic for the region.”
