      This ritual is well-worth going to, I've always been made very welcome as a Pagan.
      The nun's cast a Circle, honour the four sacred directions, weave crosses
       and lead a chanting flaming-torch-lit procession for about a mile to Brigit's stream-blessed garden sanctuary where they build a huge bonfire
      Check out the Sheela-na-gig and Green Man in Kildare Cathedral while you're there (on the underside corner's of a Bishop's tomb (!) )
