Video of Celbridge, County Kildare, Republic of Ireland

he name Celbridge (pronounced sell-bridge) is derived from the Irish Cill Droichid (pronounced kill-drokid) meaning "Church bridge" or "Church by the bridge". The Irish name was historically anglicised as Kildroicht, Kildrought, Kildroght and Kildrout.

Celbridge is the third largest town in County Kildare, the 22nd largest town in the province, and the 36th largest on the island of Ireland. The population increased by 7.8% between 2002 and 2006. Historically this was the town's most rapid growth rate in absolute terms (3,011 in four years). In percentage terms it was a slowdown on previous growth rates which were at one stage the highest in Ireland. As of the census of 2011, there were 19,537 people living in Celbridge.

Celbridge's substantial growth has created considerable traffic congestion. Much of this is attributed to the fact that there is only one bridge over the Liffey in the town, thus creating traffic bottlenecks. Lax enforcement of parking laws and a lack of adequate parking space are also blamed. The Celbridge Interchange (Junction 2a of the M4) which connects the town to the motorway as well as Intel, opened in 2003 to help address these traffic issues, with some success.

Pay parking applies along Main St. and other roads in the town centre. This applies Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm. Free parking is available at weekends. Car parks are available behind the Castletown Inn, The Mucky Duck Pub and Walsh's Pharmacy.

The Celbridge St. Patrick's Day Parade was revived in 2011 after a break in 2010. Funding was raised to provide safety barriers along the route and to invite bands to take part in the parade. Over 40 floats, schools, sports clubs and community groups were involved. The 9 strong committee were assisted by over 50 volunteer marshalls on the day. The St. Lawrence O'Toole's Band provided two bands and were keen to show off their world beating marching band skills. The winners of the best float in 2011 was The Balloon Boat created by Party Mad. Celbridge Tidy Towns entered an award winning float as well as organising a band of volunteers to clean up the Main St. following the parade.

Celbridge (from Irish: Cill Droichid, meaning "church bridge") is a town and townland on the River Liffey in County Kildare, Ireland. It is 23 km (14 mi) west of Dublin. As a town within the Dublin Metropolitan Area and the Greater Dublin Area, it is located at the intersection of the R403 and R405 regional roads.

In recent years Celbridge has expanded dramatically, yet most of the towns services and amenities still centre around the single main street.
