Leixlip - St. Brigid’s Doll Workshop with Jean

Leixlip Community Library Thursday 2nd February 2023 3pm – 4.30pm

Seo í isteach mo bhrídeog
Mo bhrídeog chun a’ tí
Mo bhrídeog álainn gléasta
In éadach agus tuí
Tabhair pingin don bhrídeog ‘s beidh sí buíoch díobh

Join Jean in Leixlip Library to make a traditional straw Babóg Bhríde, a Brigid’s doll or Brideog. This custom is still practised in some parts of Ireland. The dolls are made on the eve of St. Brigid’s day and then brought around the village or town the next day to welcome the coming of spring.

Suitable for ages 7-12
