From our Correspondent in America!! Liam Kenny has sent a list of houses/gardens in Co. Kildare which are open for visitors under the relief scheme for heritage properties. It is not an easy list to source and contains a few lesser known properties which might make interesting destinations for local historians over the days of summer.
