Beannachtaí na Féile Bríde oraibh. Happy St. Brigid’s Day. The whole school gathered in St. Oliver’s Church today to mark this special feastday. There are many stories told about St. Brigid, but perhaps the most famous is how she fashioned rushes into a cross. These crosses are thought to keep evil, fire and hunger from the homes in which they are displayed. If you are interested in trying to make one yourself watch the video below. Though we have to warn you, it takes alot of practice to become as quick as our expert!
