Description

Authentic hand made St. Brigid's Cross on history and information card.

In the months of June and July Patricia O'Flaherty of Naomh Padraig Hand Crafts can be seen togged out in chest waders and armed with a sickle cutting the raw material, Bulrush (botanical name Scirpus Lacustris) on the river Shannon and various lakes and rivers in the west of Ireland. The material is then dried out slowly indoors and after a number of weeks is ready for use.

The crosses are all made by hand and are then attached to the history and information card. Each cross measures approximately 10" in diameter (26cm). A small rush loop is attached to one of the legs so it can be hung easily.

St. Brigid 'Mary of the Gael'. Born in the mid-fifth century, and buried at Downpatrick beside St. Patrick and St. Colmcille. Brigid built the first Irish Convent beside a giant oak tree -this place became known as the Church of the Oak (Cill Dara) or Kildare as it is known today. The St. Brigid's Cross is  placed in homes, and out-buildings on her feast day, February 1st, the day on which she died about 524 AD. It is believed this emblem protects the home, and animals from evil, and want.

These authentic crosses make for a great meaningful gift.
