Naas skyline
Naas skyline
The county town of Kildare, like seemingly all larger towns in the Republic are undergoing a massive amount of building; both business and residential.
This unglamourous image is designed to show a town in transition. Another crane is off to the left out of shot.
Being only twenty or so miles from Dublin, Naas (pronounced "Nace") is a dormitary for the city as well as a focal point for development in its own right. Traffic problems are a reality as infrastructure lags behind economic growth.
