“A great St. Brigids Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

We assembled in market square Kildare town for what was to be a great day. Between Kildare and the nearby town of Newbridge lies an extensive tract of flat unenclosed grassland called "The Curragh". This beautiful stretch of land, with its soft springy grass, is known as Brigid's Pastures. The flat pasture of nearly five thousand acres still retains the right of commonage for grazing sheep which originated with Brigid. It is a place to explore, containing large numbers of ancient earthworks. The walk on St. Brigid's Day touched some of the aspects of The Curragh's rich history as well as providing a glimpse into the living life on Brigid's pastures.
