The Relics of Saint Brigid Return to Ireland


25 January is the feast of the Translation of the Relics of Saint Brigid to Portugal, on which a post can be found here. In that post I mentioned that a portion of these relics was returned to Ireland in 1929 and housed in a splendid reliquary at Saint Brigid's Church, Killester, County Dublin. The event was captured by the Pathe news service:

In the second reel we see the relic being carried in procession:
