Naas, Co. Kildare

Naas is a cosmopolitan town of approximately 16,000 inhabitants. In recent years it has experienced explosive growth with the commuter population moving into the expanding housing developments in and around the town.

Naas is well situated for horse racing lovers as it is near 3 racecourses at Punchestown, The Curragh and Naas. Punchestown hosts the Heineken International Three Day Eventing Championship and the Punchestown National Hunt Festival which is the fastest growing sporting and social event in Ireland.

There is also golfing nearby and Mondello - Ireland\'s premier racing track is located in Caragh , just 10 minutes from Naas . Throughout the year, Championship Car, Kart and Bike races are held

Naas Country Market is on every Friday in the town hall selling fresh seasonal foods and crafts.

St. David\'s Church off Main Street in Naas is worth visiting. It was first mentioned in records in 1212, when it was the parish church of Naas . It\'s crypt was only found in 1989 - complete with occupants - during restoration work. Of special interest are the 17th century bell, the 18th century unfinished tower and some old and unusual gravestones. Opening times are limited to Saturdays from 2.30 to 4.30 p.m. and Wednesday mornings from 10 noon or by arrangement with the rectory.
