In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic, the Heritage Council have encouraged local history groups to take events online or produce digital content for this year’s Heritage Week (15-23 August).
Cill Dara Historical Society’s contribution to this call has been to release online some highlights of its 2014 DVD release, Kildare Town – Reeling in the Memories.
The video can be accessed on YouTube and the time codes in the contents list, which is displayed in the expanded description located beneath the video, can be used to navigate through the video.
The video has been hosted on the County Kildare Federation of Local History Groups YouTube Channel, which can be accessed here: https://youtu.be/bcpidoVXvkM
