Meeting Brigid



St Brigid’s Cathedral, Kildare Town, County Kildare

Saint Brigid of Kildare‘ welcomes the Rose  of Tralee Contestants to St Brigids Cathedral part of  a tour of County Kildare, hosted by Kildare Failte.

Known for her once ubiquitous wonky reed-fused crucifix, Brigid is less celebrated for turning water into beer.

A saint?

She’s a goddammed angel.

    I wish I could see the face of the girl sporting that red flowery trouser suit and jaunty hat. It’s ALL going on.

        Oh, she’s lovely. She’s fond of that hat. I’m sorry it doesn’t have corks hanging from it.

      When I first saw that, I thought either Strayan, or Texan. They all sit the same way too, like they’ve all watched Miss Congeniality way too many times.

      Still, lovely bottoms and all that.

    in 2nd photo, the Offaly one looks really nice. if it was a party, i’d head over to her. i’d stay well away from the two behind her, though.

      Those two do look like they’d saw the heels off your shoes, don’t they?!

      I also like Monaghan’s skirt.

          Not a chance, she’s one of the 3 people I follow on Instagram, still carrying that torch :)

            Bertie, I saw Anna Friel recently on a repeat show from Jamie Oliver doing his pier cafe thing. She’s doing all those seductive eating moves a la Nigella and lots of oohs and aaahs. Just in case you MISSED IT.

            Thanks Hoops, I shall investigate further

            ( You’re now an accessory in the eyes of the law )

            I do too. I love looking at them, which can get a bit embarrassing. Other people’s, obv. Though I guess it would be embarrassing if I spent my day ooing and ahhing at my own bosom.

            As mentioned before, I gained some much needed weight and some of it went to my boobs, and oh matron, do I get such pleasure seeing them properly fill a bra again.

            I unashamedly stare at my own tits.

            Btw, Nigel, I very much appreciated your Papal Poetry the other day. I think it went unnoticed.

            Well no worries, I noticed. I noticed.

    1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      Hmm. I think it might be obvious I just nicked that from Millie. I haven’t an original thought in my head.

    2. Janet, I ate my Avatar

      I just check listed all the other body parts that rhythm with mass that would be appropriate to bring to church

    Bridget wasn’t even canonised – shes not a real saint but a Celtic Goddess which the Christian’s stole as their own.

    What in the name of Christ would lead anyone to take part in something like this.. they must be out of their minds..
