Between 1985 and 1992 County Kilkenny was the site of an evaluated programme of community intervention which aimed to reduce the population's heart disease burden by promoting the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. This paper analyses data on public awareness of the Kilkenny Health Project's activities collected in a 1990-91 evaluation survey. The implications of the findings for healthy lifestyle promotion programmes supporting the achievement of the targets set in the recently unveiled national health strategy are discussed.
