London Irish Centre Celebrate St Brigid’s Day

February 1, 2021

The London Irish Centre celebrates St Brigid’s Day by exploring the traditional feast of Imbolc, associated with the goddess Brigid. 

Imbolc marks a time of change in seasons, and a rebirth or renewal in nature. 

For this year’s celebration they will be focusing on change – change that has come and change that is yet to come. 

Joining will be three pairs of creative Irish women based between London and Ireland. Musicians Orla Gartland & Ruth-Anne speaking about the ‘Irish Women in Harmony’ project, gender disparity on radio, as well as other topics and musical performances. 

Noelle Brown & Jess Kav will talk about the recent release of the final report by the Commission of Investigation into Ireland’s Mother & Baby Homes, and how survivors of Mother and Baby Homes and Irish adopted people are still denied their rights. 

To finish, comedians Tara Flynn & Alison Spittle will talk about what St Brigid’s Day means to them. Tara is a long-time friend of the London Irish Centre and will be performing some of her fantastic readings on Brigid & Imbolc. 

Free livestream on YouTube and Facebook at 8pm.
