An Cumann Gaelach mark the Feast of St Brigid
To mark the Feast of St. Brigid (1st February), the boys of An Cumann Gaelach (Irish Club) were busy making Crosóga Bríde (St Brigid's Crosses) this week. St Brigid is one of Ireland’s patron saints alongside Patrick and Columba and it is believed that the crosses have the power to protect the owner’s home from harm.
8B led the Year 8 assembly this week and chose to celebrate the life of the sixth-century Irish saint.
