Most people know that the 1st of February is St. Brigid’s day.  But this year is particularly special because it is also the 200th anniversary of the Brigidine Sisters.  Together with Afri they will be organising Féile Bríde, seeding a new springtime, a week-long series of workshops which will celebrate the coming of spring and St. Brigid’s day.  Miriam Gormally met Rita Minehan, a Brigidine sister and asked her why in recent time St Brigid is getting a lot of renewed interest.
