Lots of fun at St Brigid's Cross workshop

We had a lovely afternoon with a mix of old and young participating in our annual St. Brigid's Cross workshop on Saturday. Many a tale was told of Brigid the Goddess, half-sister of our Midir and Brigid the saint who reputedly walked two miles with hot coals dropping them in a field near the village where they instantly turned into a holy well. We will share more information here about her local connections soon. In the meantime listen out for us on the Joe Finnegan show on Wednesday morning. The local tradition of visiting the well after Mass on St. Brigid's Day, 1st February still continues, why not drop into us afterwards for tea?
