A garda checkpoint on the M7 filter for Kildare Village in County Kildare


This afternoon.

Thanks, Kildare.

Let’s not have this happen again.

We’ll speak no more of it.

Kildare Covid-19 restrictions lifted with immediate effect (RTÉ)




Kearneystown, Celbridge, County Kildare.

The two-Michelin star Aimsir restaurant  runs a takeaway service called Every Cloud, from a food truck parked in front of the restaurant’s polytunnel.

Takeaway slots for collection can be booked online, and all the food is served in compostable boxed containers and cups, so it can be eaten in the garden or brought home.

In fairness.


This morning.

Naas, County Kildare.

Members of the Irish Farmers’ Association (IFA) started a 12-hour beef price protest at an Aldi distribution centre. The farmers are blocking the exit and entrance gates of the centre.

I thought this might be of longer term interest. Given the current boil water notice in Kildare where drinking the water may cause stomach problems, I found it amusing to get this letter in my door today where they are looking to fix the sewerage network in my town. While this work does need to be done, the timing is very funny.

To be fair, it is good to see that they are addressing the known problems. But it also means that just as I got my back garden under control after the last time they dug it up, it is likely to be dug up again…
