St. Brigid's Day Crosses

Pupils throughout the school made many crosses for their families and the local parishioners in the church. We will have them blessed tomorrow by Fr. Pat.

The Cloak and Tradition: A cloak was left outside the house (normally on a St. Brigid's cross in the hedge) on the night of the 31st of January, by the people who lived there. It was hoped that St. Brigid would bless the Brat-Bhríde or Ribín Bríde as she passed by during the night. The following morning the cloak was taken into the house to be used for healing.
