Castledermot is a small town in south Kildare with a population of approximately 800. The name of Castledermot (Diseart Diarmada) originated in an early Christian monastic settlement of about 500 A.D. Castledermot once held a 13th Century Fransiscan Friary, which was later plundered by Robert Bruce in 1317. Only the walls of the church in the friary remain.
