BRIGID is a new cycle of songs which celebrates the multiple gifts of the most illustrious and much loved goddess-saint in the Irish tradition.
Brigid’s Day is celebrated on 1st February, which is known as Imbolc, marking the beginning of spring in Ireland. It will be an official national holiday in Ireland from 2023. The cover image is one of the archetypal symbols of Ireland, Brigid’s Cross, which may well have been an ancient pre Christian symbol representing the masculine vertical with the feminine horizontal, and the turning of the seasonal wheel, while invoking the power of the four directions. It still continues to be made every year in Ireland as a form of protection and blessing. The songs invoke and celebrate her many gifts.
