GUEST,Peter Laban Any February Songs? (47) RE: Any February Songs? 06 Feb 21

Any song dealing with St Bridget would suit I suppose.


Eithne Ní Uallacháin's
Brighid's Kiss , for example.

Brighid’s Kiss
Brighid of the sunrise
Rising in the morning
Rising with the Springtime
Greening all the land.
See you in the soft cloud,
See you in the raindrop,
See you in the winds of change
Blowing through the land.
You the red eared white cow,
Nourishing the people,
Nourish now the hunger
Souls longing in our land.
Bird that is unfolding,
Now the time’s upon us,
Only have we eyes to see
Your Epiphany.

Wikipedia says" Her feast day is 1 February"

INION A' BHAOILLIGH aka O'Boyle's Daughter

Bhí mé oíche taoibh 'stigh Fhéil' Bríde
Ar faire thíos ar a' Mhullach Mhór
'Gus tharlaigh naí domh a dtug mé gnaoi daoi
Mar bhí sí caoíúil lách álainn óg
Sí go cinnte a mhearaigh m'intinn

English Translation
I was on the night of the Feast of St. Brigid,
Watching down on Mullaghmore
And a child happened to me who gave me a kiss
Because she was kind, beautiful, young,
She certainly confused my mind

'Claire Nic Ruairí, Iníon a' Bhaoilligh
