Greetings from the Shire Bryngolau!

St. Brigid’s Day/Imbolc Feast

Saturday, January 27, 2018

Once again, the Shire of Bryngolau gathers to celebrate, in our own inimitable style, with food, fun and frivolity, the Feast of St. Brigid.

St. Brigid’s Day has been celebrated in Ireland from pre-Christian times until today. It is a celebration that the longest nights of winter have passed and the promise of spring is returning. Imbolc, the ancient name for the celebration, loosely means "ewe's milk" and indicates that the sheep are lambing and a new season has begun.

Activities will include parlor and table games, an arts corner where guests can show off their latest projects, work on some beading or just chat with fellow artists. We plan to have a bardic and, with luck, court dancing.

The feast menu is not set but will include lamb and fowl, root vegetables in various forms, and plenty of breads.

After feast we will have a dessert competition.  Bring your favorite dessert to share, period or not, and the populace will choose their favorites.

If you do not leave with a full belly, a smile upon your face, and laughter in your soul it will not be our fault as we will provide all three, you need only accept our offer.
