On Wednesday, 26th October, Tony Doohan came in to talk to TYs about his book on the history of Celbridge. He is the principal of a local primary school so a lot of us were happy to see him.
He presented a slide show of images of past and present Celbridge and had a story to accompany each picture. We all found it really interesting to learn so much about where we live. It turns out Celbridge is one of the most historic towns in Ireland, which shocked most of us as Aoibheann explains here. And Sarah talks about some of the facts we found out here. Who knew the man who named New York came from Celbridge?
'A History of Celbridge' by Tony Doohan is available in local bookstores and businesses now.
