WHAT: St. Brigid's Day 2021 - virtual celebration
We invite you to participate in our 3rd St. Brigid's Day celebration on Sunday 31st January; this year it will have to be via Zoom. St. Brigid is one of the patron saints of Ireland and a role model for women. We invite you to join us virtually, and ideally you would speak about mná na hEireann (women from Ireland) who have had a great impact on your life, and not necessarily anyone famous. Tell us about a woman who perhaps made you who you are today: your mum, your neighbour, your best friend, your teacher, your hairdresser...we can't wait to hear about her!
WHEN: Sunday 31st January, 19:00 h (=GMT + 1h)
WHERE: Virtual meeting via Zoom
+INFO: Send your contact details to Gráinne via email before Wednesday 27th January for details on how to participate or to join to listen.
