Kildare is a county rich in heritage and history across a wide range of areas including equine, military, music, literature, sport and much more. In addition to its connections to St Brigid, Kildare is also the birthplace of the global brand Guinness, its founder Arthur Guinness and the great explorer Ernest Shackleton. The county has a long association with Ireland’s Defence Force at The Curragh and is known as the ‘Thoroughbred County’ given its vibrant equestrian sector.

Kildare’s people are not limited by current geographical location and Kildare County Council wishes to help connect Kildare’s global population, the diaspora, through relevant and interesting stories, events and news relating to Kildare’s international connections.
