Steeped in Irish history, the St. Brigid’s cross is one of Ireland’s oldest symbols. It is usually made from rushes or, less often, straw. It comprises a woven square in the centre and four radials tied at the ends. Brigid’s crosses are associated with Brigid of Kildare, who is venerated as one of the patron saints of Ireland. It is traditionally believed that a Brigid’s Cross protects the house from fire and evil. Always FREE U.S. shipping.
