Below is a piece on the history of Newbridge that I read out on Culture Night (21 September 2012) with Cill Dara Writers’ Circle. We held our event in the lovely St. Patrick’s church in Newbridge, where we also launched our second CD anthology ‘A Way with Words II’. More details can be found on our facebook page.
Here in Newbridge, Culture night coincides with the tail end of the town’s 200 hundred year celebrations. As such history meets culture this evening and I want to reflect on the intersection of these two.
