Kildare Almanac 2017 is out now
The Leinster Leader’s Kildare Almanac 2017, featuring pictures and articles from the past year, as well as tributes and obituaries and photos and pieces from the past.
The ever informative historian Liam Kenny brings us through the several important moments in history, while we feature profiles of Kildare folk doing well. A recently introduced feature of our weekly paper ‘My Kildare Life’ has proven popular and we reproduced some of them here.
The almanac features tributes to, among others, the late Thomas Maguire
We even have two award-winning short stories. Elsewhere we reprint several of the Leinster Leader’s front pages from the past, going back as far as 1887 and we even feature many of the wonderful pictures submitted by our readers over the course of the year. In sport we review the year that was in football, horse racing and soccer.
The 2017 Kildare Almanac is on sale in newsagents now!
Only one of the many excellent readers pictures.
