We look at the connections between the Irish name "Brigid/Bridget", Saint Bridget of Kildare and the Irish Celtic Goddess Brigid. This is all very appropriate as we come up to the celtic festival of "Imbolc" - celebrating the start of a celtic spring as well as Saint Brigid's day.
All with lots of chat and music along the way. Enjoy!
Songs Featured in This Episode:
- "Brigid" performed by Patrick Dexter and Laoise Kelly.
- "Hymn to Saint Brigid" performed by Philomena Breslin.
- "Imbolc Eve (Brede's Song)" performed by Hecate's Wheel.
