Book tells story of town's history

Centuries of struggle, famine, and rebellion are recounted in the pages of a new book that encourages the people of north Kildare to walk in the paths of their ancestors.

The book, 'A History of Celbridge', is being published today by the board of management of Scoil Mochua in Celbridge.

The author of the book is Tony Doohan, the retired principal of Scoil Mochua, and all proceeds from the sale of the book will be spent providing educational resources at the school.
