Goddess Brigid Celebrations

 31 Jan 2024

Brigid, or the Exalted One, is the Irish goddess of Spring, Fertility, and Life. She is loved by poets, known for being both the master of  Healing and Smithing. Her Sacred holiday, Imbolc, was held on February 1st and marked the midpoint of winter. Many of Ireland’s wells and waterways are devoted to her.

As a member of the Tuatha Dé Danann, Brigid was the wife of High King Bres and mother of Ruadán. She shares many similarities with the Catholic St. Brigid of Kildare, the patron saint of Ireland.

This year at Clares flowers, we will be stocking traditional St Brigid crosses made by our team of passionate florists whom are dedicated to keeping the tradition of Brigid alive and represented in the best ways that we can.
