St Brigid's Flame

The St. Brigid’s Flame monument was unveiled by President Mary McAleese on St. Brigid’s Day, 1st february, 2006 at the Market Square Kildare. The flame which had been extinguished centuries previously by the Norman Archbishop, Ralph de Londres, had been brought back to Kildare in 1993 by the Brigidine Sisters. This ‘inextinguishable flame’ of St. Brigid has been forever commemorated in this beautiful sculpture.
