St. Brigid's Cross workshop
St. Brigid's Day is by tradition on the 1st February, also known as Imbolc. Come along to our workshop on Saturday 28th to prepare. €5 per person. Tea/Coffee provided.
Brigid had strong connections with Ardagh as is evident in the naming of the local Catholic Church and the Holy Well in the locality. She is reputed to have been ordained a bishop by St. Mel in Ardagh and to have established her first convent in the area. We will have a brief discussion on her local connections and her story, links to celtic traditions and get our participants to try their hands at making a St. Brigid's Cross to bring home.
(This workshop can also be adapted for schools/groups at our usual group rates)
