St. Bridget’s feast day on Wednesday 1st. February was celebrated with water which was brought in from St. Bridget’s Well in Ballycallan.
Thanks to Fr. Jim and Michael Kelly who spent Tuesday afternoon searching through the fields and byways of Ballycallan trying to find the well.
An 85year old man, Billy Butler, came to their aid and brought them to the source. Hopefully we will be able to collect the rushes next year in Ballyouskill so that the ladies will be using their skills making the crosses. Unfortunately we were all suffering the effects of flu and chest infections and so were unable to venture into the hills this year.
