La Fheile Bride. Happy St Brigid's Day to all our families. Today marks the beginning of Spring. Hopefully it will bring us some brighter days and warmer weather. Lots of signs of spring are beginning to awaken such as the sprouting of daffodils and the birth of lambs. St. Brigid is the patron saint of Kildare and to celebrate her day there are lots of activities available online. You can visit www.intokildare.ie and lots of videos and links to celebrate the day.
The making of St Brigid's Crosses is a longstanding tradition across the county, with many schools engaging with the activity each year. The link below shows how one can be made at home using pipe cleaners - strips of paper will also work.
