THE Today Show with Daití Ó Sé and Maura Derrane on RTÉ 1 television will come live from Kildare town this Wednesday 25 January in a special programme celebrating the town’s connection with St Brigid.

Member of the public are encouraged to drop along to the square at 3pm. One member of the public will have the opportunity to take part in the programme’s 50/50 quiz and win lots of valuable prizes.

Maura Derrane will be in Kildare town while Daithí will hold the fort in the studio. Maura will film a pre-recorded sequence with local school children for the opening of the show earlier in the day but the rest of the links will be live from Kildare throughout the afternoon. Expect to see various Kildare people being interviewed including Brian Fallon from Taste of Kildare, Brian Flanagan who produces organic Kompucha and Sr Rita from Solal Bhríde among others. Newbridge Gospel Choir will also be performing.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to promote Kildare and its links to St Brigid and the new national holiday. Into Kildare, the county’s tourism organisation has been working hard with the programme to showcase all Kildare hast to offer.
