St. Brigid of Kildare

As Solas Bhride developed, we too grew more conscious of the interconnectedness of all creation and the need to care for planet earth and the whole community of life. A visit to Solas Bhride and St. Brigid’s Well by renowned cultural historian, author and eco scholar, Thomas Berry, influenced our thinking and our mode of responding to local needs. He was invited to plant an oak sapling at St. Brigid’s Garden well to mark his visit.
