Calling Kildare’s Diaspora - Join the Kildare County Council global diaspora network

Calling Kildare’s Diaspora


Kildare is a county rich in heritage and history including equine, military, music, literature and much more. It is the birthplace of St Brigid, the patron Saint of Ireland; her life and legacy are being celebrated and commemorated through the ‘Brigid 1500‘ program of events.

It is 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 County Council wants to support its Kildare diaspora to connect and to grow our global network.

If you have contacts within your network who would like to connect or reconnect with our county, please encourage them to complete this short questionnaire
