Lá Fhéile Bríde – Feast of Saint Brigid
Friday 1st February is the feast of Saint Brigid, which marks the beginning of spring. St. Brigid has always had a special connection with both Drum and Clonown. In the past people made St Brigid’s crosses from rushes and hung them in the outhouses in order to protect the animals from illness.
Those who wish to host a station mass in their home this spring are invited to contact Drum Parish Office to book a date and time. The stations have been a tradition in the parish for generations and it would be lovely to see the tradition continue and restored for generations to come.
