 Artist, Pamela de Bri, will give an illustrated talk on her journeys through the midlands where she met people and heard their stories. Her unique notebook of conversations and observations, illustrated in her distinct artistic style, will form the backdrop to a fascinating talk about the social and historical connections of the midland region.

Newbridge History

Welcome to the Website of the Newbridge Local History Group.      

Newbridge Local History Group was founded in the 1980s to foster an interest in the history of the town and surrounding areas.

The Group is interested in preserving the photographic, written and oral heritage of Newbridge and making these resources easily accessible to all.

This website is being used to create an accessible online archive for photos, memoirs and accounts of the town’s history.

Please make contact if you have additional material which can be added to the site, or if you have comments on the content or format of the current archive.

From September to June, monthly meetings are held (usually on the third Wednesday of the month) in Ryston Social Club to highlight and discuss local history topics relevant to Newbridge and to County Kildare.

Details of forthcoming meetings can be found at the top of this page, or in St Conleth's Parish Weekly Newsletter, or in local publications. A notification is also circulated to all members who have registered their email addresses.
