Brigid, or the Exalted One, was the Irish goddess of spring, fertility, and life. Beloved by poets, she was the master of both healing and smithing.

About me

While the former abounds in the lush verdant landscape, the latter crowns the he of more thanIrish men, women and children. In Ireland, however, the percentage jumps to 10 percent. It is no wonder, then, that the ancient Irish divine pantheon included a red-haired goddess. Her name was Brid. According to myth, Brid was born full-grown at sunrise in a house ablaze with light.

A fiery column reached from her flame-red curls into the heavens. Beside the cottage flowed a stream whose waters had power to cure. On its banks grew healing plants. In the pasture grazed a red-eared cow whose sweet milk never ran dry. Brid, the goddess of fire, was the patroness of hearth and home, smiths and forges, healers and herbs, poets and language. Druids revered the oak, because, of all trees in the forest, it alone could survive a lightning strike. For centuries, women, especially those born with red hair, were named Brid, Bridgid or Bridget in honor of the goddess.

Sláinte! forty shades of red

In approximately A. This Brigid was beautiful, gifted, and so strong-willed that when the Druid attempted to marry her off, she refused, choosing instead to devote her life to charity and be baptized by a man named Patrick who was preaching the teachings of a new faith, Christianity, throughout Ireland. Legend holds that on one Imbolc, Brigid placed her foot in a spring outside the village of Liscannor by the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. Waters warmed; weather improved.

Cows filled with milk; butter production expanded. She traveled widely, entertained with charm and grace, and, like modern successful women, was an excellent business manager who could outwit even the cagiest chieftain.

A favorite story concerns the founding of her abbey in Kildare. It seems Brigid had acquired such a reputation for good works that the local king was obliged to reward her. To prove his magnanimity, he offered Brigid as much land as her mantle could cover. With a knowing smile, the good woman spread her cloak on the ground.

The abbey became a way station for the weary traveler, and its abbess, known for being as caring of starving dogs as hungry beggars, was miraculously able to feed multitudes with very little. Like her mentor, Saint Patrick, she was fond of ale and is reputed to have been the best brewer in the land.

She also kept the best dairy, where her red-eared cows gave more and better milk than any other herd. The monastery has been added to many times during the intervening millennia. In the 11th century a Norman round tower was built. Made of unmortared stone, the foot tower is the tallest of its kind in Ireland and still stands in silent vigil over the surrounding countryside.

Six hundred years ago, a cathedral was built over the crumbling monastery, but during the 16th century its walls were blown out by invading English artillery fire. Between anda massive restoration project expanded the ancient structure.

At that time, stained glass windows that illuminate the interior yet today were installed. Once, the cross symbolized hope for a successful harvest. Whether the evening meal be fish, beef or fowl it is always accompanied with Boxty Cakes, plenty of fresh butter and tall glasses of creamy buttermilk. In very traditional Irish homes, two devout practices are still observed. A loaf of oat bread baked in the shape of a cross and a sheaf of straw are left on the windowsill.

For on that one night, Brid travels again through the land with her red-eared cow bestowing blessings on those who remember the old ways.

Red hair genes, discovered inare associated with pigmentation receptors found on chromosome 16 in human DNA. It is estimated that up to 46 percent of the Irish population carries the recessive gene. Redhe have light eye colors and fair skin, freckle easily, and are sensitive to ultraviolet light. They are highly susceptible to developing skin maladies, especially skin cancer, when exposed for prolonged periods to strong sun.

The 10 fieriest redhe throughout history

Not a lot of redhe in Ireland, contrary to popular opinion. The largest percentage of redhe in the world is in Russia, a Baltic ethnic group known as the Udmurt who are descendants of the Finns. Ashkenazi Jews also have a slightly higher percentage of redhe than Celtic peoples. I hope the rest of the folks you meet to day are far less annoying. Curious to where you obtained your s.
