(Bridget, Bride, Ffraid) [450-525], born at Faughart near Dunkalk, she took the veil in her youth and founded the nunnery of Kildare, the first to be created on Irish soil. Hundreds of legends have arisen about her, most of them centering on her mercy and pity for the poor. In art, Brigid is often represented holding a cross, with a flame over her head, and sometimes with a cow near her. She is the protectress of those engaged in dairy work. She is seen here with a churn. She is also patron of scholars and Patron of Ireland only after St. Patrick himself. Her feast is February 1
