SAINT BRIGID PRODUCTS

St. Brigid’s Day – Lá Fhéile Bríde – celebrates Ireland’s only female patron saint on February 1 and most people will be familiar with the popular tradition of making crosses in St Brigid’s honour.

St. Brigid ‘Mary of the Gael’ was born in the mid-fifth century. She was a daughter of a pagan chieftain – a stubborn unbeliever, before his death Brigid sat by him in prayer, and whiled away the time by weaving the first St. Brigid’s Cross from the rushes strewn about the floor. Her father, seeing the Cross, asked her to explain its meaning, and was so overwhelmed, became a Christian before his death.
