I was roaming around on the internet and came across an article talking about the possibility that Brigid may have been the inspiration for St. Brigid. 

Do you think this is possible?

It's somewhat unlikely as there are apparently actual records of the Brigid (who was head of an abbey as I recall) who became the saint.  However, it is quite likely that some of the legends of Brigid the Goddess became conflated with those of Brigid the saint.
