The WINNER of our Kildare Snapshots competition is...

Snapshots Kildare

Thanks to all who entered our Snapshots competition - where we asked you to send in your favourite old pictures.

We received many entries from across the county, and it was great to see those wonderful old memories being revived.

To choose the overall winner, and recipient of the voucher prize pack, we asked readers to vote on polls on the Leinster Leader and KildareNow websites. The photograph with the overall number of votes between the two sites, after voting closed today at midday, was declared the winner.


This picture was sent in by Liz Mangan and shows her grandmother and mother in 1962. Liz said: "This is a picture of my mother and her mother in 1962. They lived at the side of the road in Painstown, Donadea. Both have since passed.  My mother died at 57 in 2015 lung cancer and my grandmother died 2 years after this picture was taken 1964 aged 48 of a bursted brain aneurysm.  This is definitely my all time favourite picture. Notice the washing drying on the hedge.” 

Thanks to all our competition sponsors - McDonald's, Life Credit Union, Ciara's Home Style, Manguard Plus and Grafton Barbers.
