Saint Brigid’s Cross

Wed 1 Feb 2023 is Saint Brigid’s Day





Brigid’s cross or Bridget’s cross is a small cross woven from rushes and has four arms tied at the ends and a woven square in the middle.

Brigid’s crosses are associated with Saint Brigid, a patron saint of Ireland and of babies, infants and more…

The crosses are traditionally made on St Brigid’s feast day, 1 February, Lá Fhéile Bríde, marking the beginning of Spring and the famous SOFT Coffee mornings and family Outings!

Put a St Brigid’s cross in a place of honour in your home, to protect against fire, evil spirits, and any kind of harm

Why not light a candle, say a prayer and have a nice cup of coffee on St Brigid’s Day
