Feast Day Fun: St Brigid

February 1st  is the Feast Day of St Brigid of Ireland

St. Brigid was born daughter to a chieftain and a slave woman, and brought up by a druid. Her life was marked by miracles from an early age which impressed the king of Leinster, who granted her her freedom.

She and her friend St. Patrick, are regarded as the Pillars of the Irish people. (from SaintNook)
