Following the launch of a new Irish television channel, Kildare is set to have its own weekly programme.
A half-hour weekly slot will feature on the new startion IrishTV, which will be available on Sky Channel 191.
“The theme of Kildare County Matters is simple – Irish life is unique, with its own cultures, traditions and events. At the heart of these events are people, and wherever people gather, we’ll be there,” said Kildare presenter and Allenwood man Alan Brereton.
“I think the entire country was waiting for this to happen. In Kildare alone there are so many stories in every corner of the county and people are so proud and passionate to tell them.
