17 tweets you can relate to if you're from Kildare

There are worse places to be from than the Lily White county.

KILDARE IS A county which isn’t really talked about much. We’re based outside of Dublin and we’re relatively inoffensive as a county. Our county colour is white for god’s sake which made county colours night in the Gaeltacht pretty straightforward.

To our credit we’ve produced a number of great women including Aisling Bea, Emer McLysaght, MayKay and of course, St. Brigid as well as someone called Nonpareil Jack Dempsey who just sounds badass.

Here are 17 tweets to remind you why our small county can be both awful and great at the same time.

1. We have some of the best tourist attractions

I will not hear a word against our fine Steam Museum thank you.

2. We also have Kildare Village which Dublin does not

Do we go to it? No. But we’re still PROUD of it.

3. That being said, not living in Dublin does present its issues

Commuting is hell.

4. And all that commuting can have an effect

The N7 is the worst place in the world to be honest.

5. We tend to crop up in some of the oddest places

Yeah that’s actually a thing.

6. We have a habit of embarrassing politicians

We still don’t know why the llama or the Taoiseach was there.

7. We’re proud of some odd things

Why was he cutting it with a bottle of champagne? Why is this photo framed? I NEED ANSWERS.

8. When the weather hits, it tends to hit us bad

We nearly lost the entire county to snow.

9. But we tend to make the best of it

Those people are now renting that igloo out as a ‘small, studio flat just outside the city centre’.

10. We have a sexy accent apparently

Even though nobody can quite agree what exactly a Kildare accent is.

11. And we’re not quite sure ourselves where we’re from

‘I’m from Dublin.’ ‘Rachel you’re from Kildare’. ‘Ok I live on the border’.

12. We tend to get a lot of slagging for our existence

We’re not nondescript we just don’t like hogging all the attention like Dublin does.

13. We do tend to inflict it on ourselves

14. And we really do love our horses

If you don’t own a horse, are you even from Kildare? (Spoiler alert: Yes unfortunately).

15. But sometimes you have to look on the lighter side

It would be a great remix too.

16. And hey, we gave Ireland St. Brigid

Take that Dublin.

17. And there’s nothing wrong with being neutral

It could be worse, we could be from Wicklow or Kerry.
