St. Brigid of Kildare

Another oasis during a difficult time was the Gathering Event in 2013 and the achievement of a Guinness World Record for Solas Bhride by gathering 357 people from near and far to mindfully weave a St. Brigid’s cross in St. Brigid’s Parish church at the same time. It was another historic day for Kildare and was the climax of a week long programme of events for the Gathering for which we got a flagship grant from KCC and IPB. Again it was the linking with and cooperation of the lcoal community which made this award possible.
