News - A new book - Kill Village - A History - has been launched on 17/06/22

This 128 page book has been produced by the members of the Kill History Group, and is very much a team effort.

The chairman, Brian McCabe would like to acknowledge the collaboration of Tony Keane, whose wonderful photos, eye for layout, and technical skills contributed so much. We also thank Mary Coyle for the various articles she has contributed based on her 50 years of living in the village. Thanks also to Des Murtagh for the article on schools, Paddy Walsh for piece on Tidy Towns, Paul Heaney and Eamonn Bermingham for GAA (and Eddie O'Loughlin for personal memories), Paul Ryan for piece on Kill Celtic, and Ann Fleming and Terry Healy for ICA material. Thanks to Imelda Butler for use of articles collated by her late husband John. Thanks to all who contributed old photos.

Thanks to Mario Corrigan and all in the Local Studies Section of Kildare Library Service, and other local historians, notably James Durney, Liam Kenny, Seamus Cullen, Eogham Corry and Jim Tancred.

This publication was assisted by a grant from the Local Property Tax Fund by Kildare County Council.

It can be bought in the Eurospar supermarket, Life Pharmacy, Canvas Cafe or Two Cooks cafe, or the Parish Office in Kill  (or by contacting us - Click Here).
