Our sincere thanks to Sr. Anne Powell, New Zealand, for allowing us to include her wonderful poem which relates to the 3 monasteries, of St. Brigid at Faughart, St. Monnina at Kileavy and the current Poor Clares at Faughart, all linked through time by place, prayer and lives of contemplation.
The mantle of Brigid about us, The memory of Brigid within us,
The protection of Brigid keeping us from harm, from ignorance, from heartlessness.
This day and night from dawn till dark.
O óich go hóich
From the Prayer of Brigid.
