Today, 1st February, we celebrate the feast day of St. Brigid, Lá Fhéile Bríde. St. Brigid is one of the foremost saints in Ireland.
She is associated with spring and new growth. She was a wise and courageous leader and was renowned for her hospitality
and her kindness to those in need. Her most famous monastery was in Kildare – Cill Dara – the Church of the Oak Wood.
There are many stories about St. Brigid, the best known of which is St. Brigid’s Cloak. This tells us how she acquired land to build her monastery.
She is the patron saint of our school, Scoil Bhríde. Visit our outdoor performance space where you will see some lovely mosaic panels depicting the life and works of St Brigid.
