The Village – Coill Dubh – Co Kildare – from the Air

Coill Dubh from the Air

The town was established in 1952 on the townland of Blackwood (“Coill Dubh” is an Irish translation), just off the R403 between Prosperous, County Kildare and Timahoe, County Kildare to accommodate workers on the Bord na Mona works supplying a peat fired power station in Allenwood. It replaced earlier temporary workers camps at Killinthomas, Mucklon and Timahoe, with 160 houses and four shops.
