“At the heart of the longing of all pilgrims lies the hope and dream that, by travelling to a special place associated with the divine, they might somehow be changed and renewed.  ….. As a pilgrim to Kildare, you will be able to contemplate its historic past, nourish your pilgrim heart and imbibe a sense of mystery and timelessness as you walk ancient paths.”  Rita Minehan “Rekindling the Flame: A pilgrimage in the footsteps of St. Brigid
