Connemara Marble Brigid Cross


Sterling Silver St Brigid's Cross With Connemara Marble Inlay.

St. Brigid was born in AD 450 near Dundalk in Co. Louth. She was the daughter of a pagan chieftain of Leinster and her mother, Broicsech, was a Christian. Brigit lived during the time of St. Patrick and was inspired by his preachings and converted to Christianity. St. Brigid and her cross are linked together by the story that she used rushes from the floor to weave this form of a cross at the death bed of either her father or a pagan lord, who upon hearing what the cross meant, asked to be baptized.
