St. Brigid’s Day
On St. Brigid’s day the little girls of the district dress up a doll which they call a Brideóg. Then they go from house to house and repeat the following rhyme
“Here comes poor Brigid both deaf and both blind
Put your hand in your pocket and give her a coin
If you haven’t a penny a halfpenny will do
If you haven’t a halfpenny God bless you.”
The people usually give a few pence. If they ask the child’s name its not customary to tell it.Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
- The usual Irish custom of wearing the shamrock is carried out on this day. A few of the old men drown the shamrock by taking a few drinks in the public house. There are not any great celebrations to honour the feast but occasionally the Mullagh and Murrisk bands play through the village.Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
