On St Brigid’s Day, four Brigids have shared what their name means to them.
Ranging in age from 11 to 37, each Brigid – or Bridget in one case – has a special connection to Ireland’s matron saint.
The group were gathered at the launch of Brigit 2024: Dublin City Celebrating Women, a five-day celebration of the Celtic goddess Brigit, who embodies – among other things – inspiration, healing and wisdom. The programme of events runs from Thursday 1 February until the bank holiday Monday.
