St. Brigid's Day Recipes
St. Brigid's Day is 1st February. Even if there is frost on the snowdrops, this is the official start to the Celtic Spring. We are six weeks between Christmas and the Spring Equinox. Celebrate brighter days and the earth getting ready to sprout seedlings with my Seed Cake recipe.

The Festival of Brigit
The Festival of Brigit on 1st February is the official start of the Irish spring. The snow may still be on the snowdrops but this ancient celebration of Ireland's saint and goddess begins the season of renewal.

The Mary of the Gaels
Ireland has three patron saints and one is a woman, St. Brigit. So strictly speaking she is a matron saint and a motherly concern for so many aspects of life reveals that she watches a lot of backs!

The Famine in Ireland
The Great Famine that began in 1847 with the failure of the potato crop changed the course of history not just for Ireland, but for the world.
