    Abstract

    This paper examines the growth and changes in population characteristics and lifestyle in three towns in north Kildare which have come increasingly within the influence of the Dublin Metropolitan area. The data used are primarily obtained from three surveys carried out in the towns during recent years and contrasts are made with previous work in the area. It is suggested that community life still exists in these towns but that the effects of proximity to Dublin are having ever greater impact on that life.
