Sallins, Co. Kildare

Sallins is a suburban town in County Kildare, Ireland, situated 3.5 km north of the town centre of Naas, from which it is separated by the M7 motorway. Sallins is the anglicised name of Na Solláin which means "The Willows".

According to the official CSO Census of 2006, the electoral division of Sallins has a total population of 3,806. The village has expanded rapidly in recent years and since the 2002 census, the population has grown by 30.3pc. It is the 10th largest settlement in Kildare and the 91st largest in Ireland. Due to the very close proximity of the village to Naas, it is now considered to be a suburb of Naas[citation needed].

Sallins grew as a result of its position on both the Grand Canal and the Dublin to Cork railway line. Historically, the major employers in the village were Odlum's Flour Mills and a meat factory, although the latter is now closed.

Theobald Wolfe Tone is buried near Sallins village in Bodenstown graveyard. Each summer, Irish Republicans of various political and paramilitary groupings congregate at Sallins to hold commemorations at Tone's grave.
