Blessings of Brigid!

St Brigid's Well in Kildare, Ireland
Statue by Annette McCormack

"O Brigid, Mary of the Gael,
May thy protection never fail.
Spread thy mantle over me,
Where’re I pass, where’re I be.
Weather foul or weather fair,
Keep me in your loving care."

The Wayside Well

This older well runs into and feeds the Well of Brigid and is believed to be the first well dedicated to Her in Kildare.  The plaque reads:  "St. Brigid, Mary of the Gael, pray for us." 

Next Monday, February 6th, 2023 will mark Ireland's first St. Brigid's bank holiday.  You can read more about it at this link:
