Church · Hidden Gem · Landmark
Round Towers is a Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) club based in Kildare in County Kildare, Ireland winner of 10 Kildare county senior football championships in all, six as Round Towers, three as Kildare and one as St Patrick's. Glenn Ryan featured on the Kildare football team of the millennium and was an All Stars Award winner in 1997 and 1998. Karl O'Dwyer (son of the Kerry Great Micko Dwyer) and Brian Lacey were All Stars Award winners in 1998, and former Wexford hurler and 1989 All Star Eamon Cleary played for the team in the 1990s. A separate club, Naomh Bríd or St Brigid's organises hurling in the town. Three Naomh Bríd players, Tommy Burke, Jack O'Connell, and Pat White were chosen on the Kildare hurling team of the millennium. The Fitzpatrick family founded another club, Mooretown, in the district – its only honour was the Junior C Championship of 1982.
