St. Brigid’s Cross

This plaque shows an image of the ancient Celtic Cross kown as the ‘St. Brigid’s Cross’. St. Brigid was a saint who lived in Ireland 1,500 years ago, and is accredited with inventing the simple cross. It is traditionally plated or woven from rushes (i.e. bog grass) on St. Brigid’s Eve, the 1st of February. Placed in the home, above the door, its purpose is to bless all who enter and to gain protection for the household from fire and disease. Over the generations it has become a symbol for peace and goodwill and is offered as an indication of a desire for friendship.

    Lovely gift for my wife’ on our anniversary. Beautifully presented.

  2. Rose Daly (verified owner)

    Arrived promptly. Beautifully crafted Celtic Design Cross. The cross itself is a pottery replica of the traditional one made from reed. Exception being this gift does not deteriorate. I got 2 – one for 60th, other for 70th birthdays. Lovely explanation card re Cross included. The inlay in the box is sac cloth mesh with same mesh used to hang the cross. Every aspect of this gift is crafted. I am thrilled with the superior quality of this gift. Certainly terrific value for money.
