Feminist, farmer, abbess, bishop, convent founder and miracle worker, St. Brigid has inspired Irish women and men down through the ages. She cared for the poor, healed the sick, and managed monastic settlements.

She became patron saint of revolutionaries and women fighting for their rights. She is also credited with inventing the Rosary beads, brewing ale, and inspiring the first tiered wedding cake and Buy Irish campaign.

Pirate Queen Grace O'Malley, Lady Gregory and Maud Gonne MacBride regarded her as a guiding light. All of them, including Brigitte Bardot, Bridget Hitler and Cromwell's daughter Bridget, are featured in this book.

The book also describes her holy wells, St. Brigid's Crosses, churches, miracles and cures - providing you with all you will ever need to know about Ireland's female patron saint.
