As our school is named after St. Brigid, February 1st, her feast day, is a very special occasion for us. As the female patron Saint of Ireland St. Brigid spent her life serving God and looking after the sick and the poor. She founded many convents all over Ireland, the most famous one was in Co. Kildare. At school we listened to stories about Brigid’s cloak and her cross, with children in the older crosses constructing their own crosses. We sang “A Song to Brigid” at assembly this morning and asked St. Brigid to bless us.Lá Fhéile Bríde
