Sallins

Sallins is a small town in Kildare just a few miles from the larger towns of Naas and Newbridge. The name Sallins is the anglicised name of Na Solláin which means “The Willows”.  It is home to a very unusal “Tin Church” which was built in 19824 as a temporary structure, the Helpful Engineer blog has a wonderful informative description of this church.
