The Round 1 votes are in and there were a fair few shocks in our Kildare's All Time Greats poll.
There were fallers among Kildare's top sportsmen, with Ruby Walsh, Dermot Weld, Johnny Doyle and Glenn Ryan failing to make it through to the second round. Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton beat out Newbridge bard Christy Moore.
Kildare town comedian Aisling Bea topped our polls this week for the number of votes she received, and beat out rebel John Devoy. Bea ran a hilarious social media campaign and even got Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher to back her campaign.
PLEASE vote for me in this first round up against a "fenian"for "Kildare's All Time Greats". If you vote for me, I promise to drain the swamp of corruption and I WILL get people from Laois to pay for and build the wall. https://t.co/ycNY20xBbY https://t.co/zTmEbuneM8— Aisling Bea (@WeeMissBea) January 26, 2019
