Many of these areas have been by-passed, or seen the closure of Garda stations, post offices, and local shops in recent decades.
The workshop, facilitated by Conor O'Leary of Muintir Na Tíre, takes place in the Crookstown Education Centre, beginning at 7.30pm
Spokesperson, Sean Cleary, has been speaking to Kildare Today.
