The Waters of Brigit's Birthplace

Anthony Murphy's wonderful video of the shrine at Faughart, Eire. The only music is the sound of the waters running over Brigit's soil.

"The shrine at Faughart, near Dundalk, County Louth, is dedicated to Saint Brigid, Ireland's second saint (after Patrick), who was said to have been born at Faughart in the fifth century. She later founded a monastery at Kildare. Her tradition is strongly celebrated in Faughart and Dundalk to this day, with an annual pilgrimage and other events taking place on her feast day, February 1st, every year."

You are very welcome, V. Glad you came by and stayed awhile by Brigit's stream.
