About Brigit of Kildare
Saint Brigid of Kildare or Brigid of Ireland is one of Ireland's patron saints, along with Patrick and Columba.
St Brigid's cross is an Irish custom of making crosses out of rushes and placing them in homes on spring feast days. The custom has its origins in the legend of Brigid’s conversion of a dying pagan. She fashioned a makeshift cross by plaiting rushes strewn on the hut floor.
Throughout the Irish country from Fair Head to Mizen Head, rushes are still blessed on the eve of the feast day and made into crosses, sometimes by the whole family. The finished crosses are hung on the house to provide protection for the rest of the year.
