Collecting rushes for St Brigid’s Day!

Collecting rushes for St Brigid’s Day!

Today we went for a walk down by Lough Atalia to look for rushes. Tomorrow is St. Brigid’s day and we will make a Saint Brigid’s day cross using these rushes. We found lots of rushes and each had a turn to gather some. We found the rushes in the swampy area near the water.

We even stopped off at the playground for a few minutes 🙂

Keep updated to see the crosses that we will make on Saint Brigid’s day (the 1st of February)!
