Thank you for your email concerning ‘Creedon’s Cities’ which as Series Producer was passed to me.
Only four programmes were commissioned in this series on Irish cities, so naturally two cities had to be excluded and even more if we were to include all the island. When I was given this commission, I knew from the outset that some people would not be happy with whatever selection was made, the production team therefore decided to leave personal preferences aside and simply feature the four largest cities in the Republic of Ireland. Therefore Kilkenny and Waterford were excluded this time out, but this is not to say that these cities are not interesting and may not feature in any forthcoming series.
Even though Waterford does is not in this new series, I do hope you will still watch the programmes.
Should we point out that KK is not actually a city, and so they only excluded one?

I suppose I'm just venting because I wish that this whole thing didn't come into so many threads. So many seem to veer off into that type of discussion....
You just contradicted yourself, so are you annoyed its a Waterford v Kilkenny thing or annoyed that the thread has become whether or not KK is a city?
The posts I've Quoted above show where the confusion about Kilkennys city status arised. I'd be annoyed if the thread did become a Waterford v Kilkenny thing, but I see no sign of that here.
