Yesterday all Ty's went to the library to get a talk on local history with Mr.Doohan. We learned all about the history of Celbridge.
I am normally not the biggest fan of history but found the talk really interesting. He talked about Castletown house, Celbridge village, the history of St.wolstans(my school) and the workhouse.
I never realised how historic Celbridge is and didnt realise that Castletown house was the first house build of stone in the whole of Ireland :o
I really enjoyed the talk and the fact that most interested me and one that i will definately remember is that a man from Celbridge named New York City !
Now i realise why Celbridge really is a historic town!
