St. Brigid of Ireland In Europe
Presenter: Liam Kenny
Kildare historian, Liam Kenny, is author of numerous articles on the very popular “Looking Back Series” in the Lenister Leader. His articles cover a variety of topics relating to the history, archaeology and heritage of Co. Kildare. Liam’s choice of topic for this Feile Bride event is “Brigid of Kildare in Europe – a Conversation” .
In a recently published book “St. Brigid of Kildare – Life, Legend and Cult” (Four Courts Press 2017) the author Dr. Noel Kissane wrote, “…the cult of St. Brigid was one of the first Irish cults to become widespread on Continental Europe and she was the Irish saint most widely venerated abroad.”
Liam will introduce the topic and then leave it open to the floor for all participants to offer their “gems of wisdom”. It promises to be a very enriching night.
