In 480 AD, St. Brigid arrived with her nuns and decided to build an 'abbey' in this quaint village under an oak tree. the name of the village evolves from Cill Dara or the Church of the oak. Kildare gradually developed into a market town.
Kildare village is a chic shopper's paradise sporting trendy designer labels such as DKNY, Calvin Klein, Hackett, Lacoste, Clarks... Factory outlets like Nike, Levi's, North West also have their presence there.
Take a look at what's in store for the eyes and of course for the pocket!!!
RTE (Radio Television Eire) will be 50 years old on New Year's Eve 2011.(RTE is like Doordarshan in India)
So what ?? you would ask me, especially from the other side of the Globe and miles away from Ireland.Very TRUE and good question.In fact with all the new new 24hours channels, I see RTE mainly for Irish News and Sports probably giving the same importance as we used to give Doordarshan.What am i talking and what's the point i am coming to ?Well, An Post (the postal department of Ireland) issued three stamps of 55 cents each to commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary.What really caught my eye was the three stamps made me look back at the years that had passed by.
