On Culture Night, join Athy Sing and Sign who will showcase an artistic mannequin representing St Brigid which they have worked on collaboratively. In the run up to Culture Night, Athy Sing & Sign members have been learning to sign a St Brigid song in ISL and they are delighted to share this with you on night.
As well as learning new ISL signs associated with St Brigid, the group have been learning about her heroic life, her achievements and her contribution to feminine strength. A printed poster of ISL signs associated with St. Brigid by artist Brendan O’Rouke will be printed as part of their celebrations.
Melanie Dunne, a local artist in Athy will coordinate a stain glass painting activity of St Brigid demonstrating the folklore stories of her life. This evening will be a celebration of our county’s national saint.
