Have your say on who will be crowned Kildare's All Time Great

VOTE NOW: St Brigid v Ernest Shackleton in Kildare's All Time Greats semi-finals

Vote for Kildare's All Time Great

It's Saint Brigid versus Sir Ernest Shackleton in this semi-final face-off to find Kildare's All Time Greats. She was the patron saint of Kildare - an early feminist, the rebel daughter of a chieftain, a brewer who claimed a cloakful of land to found her abbey. He was a noted Antarctic explorer whose brave rescue of his crew after their shop got stuck in ice has gone down in history. It's Kildare town versus south Kildare in this match-up, who has the greatest support?
