We were thrilled to be involved in the development of the new Brigid of Faughart Mural created in Bridge Street, Dundalk as part of the SEEK Visual Arts Festival in August 2020. The mural was created by the wonderfully talented artist Friz, who is based in Belfast and who managed to incorporate so many aspects of Brigid as both Christian Saint and Pre-Christian Goddess in this exciting new artwork. The mural is located in Bridge Street in Dundalk, which is the street that local people would have passed along, when walking out to Faughart for the annual St.Brigid's Day celebrations - a very fitting location indeed. We wish to thank all involved in organising the fantastic SEEK art…
There are various ways to walk this sacred path: the full 9 day Pilgrimage, certain sections or any number each consecutive day or indeed join us for one, Walk a day for Brigid. Check out http://www.brigidsway.ie for full details
