In preparation for St Brigid’s day, Blasket worked with rushes to make a St Brigid's cross.
Teacher brought in rushes from home and told us stories about St. Brigid and how she helped spread the word of Jesus to the people of Ireland. Teacher demonstrated how to make a cross and then helped students to work together to make a cross.
We also visited St. Brigid’s shrine at Faughart. We took note of all the different symbols and stones we saw – checking them off our lists.
We also noticed a beautiful ‘sign of spring’ – a bunch of snowdrops.
Welcome to Blasket!
Our teacher is Mrs Majella Harris.
