Kildare Town - St. Brigid's Parish Church

The Nave of the church was built n 1833 by Fr. Patrick Brennan; P.P.

Daniel O'Connell received Holy Communion at the opening of the church and was sponsor of the first bell, which now hangs in the former Presentation Convent which now is home to Kildare Leader Project.  The Bell hung originally over the gable facing the convent.  The present bell dates from 1851 when Fr. Brennan, to cater for the increased population, added the tower and gallery.

In 1969- 70 the church was re-roofed, the gallery removed, the Blessed Sacrament Chapel added, and the church adapted to the modern liturgy. The Church was further renovated and extended with the Blessing and Re-Dedication taking place in Sunday 31st August 1975 by Most Rev Patrick Lennon, DD, bishop of Kildare and Leighlin.
