Lá 'le Bríde

St Brigid's Day is celebrated on February 1st, the first day of Spring. St. Brigid was born in Co. Louth and settled in Co. Kildare where she built a church and convent. She was a kind woman who spent her life helping other people.The tradition of making St. Brigid's day crosses is a long standing one in Corofin National School. Here are some pictures of fifth and sixth class with their St. Brigid's Day crosses which they made from rushes, just like St. Brigid did all those years ago.
