Welcome to the Cill's thread on Brighid resources.

One of my pet projects is collecting resources about Brighid, both as goddess and as saint.  My current list is pasted below (it's a little bit updated from the list that appears on the Cauldron's Brighid info page).

I will add to it as I find new resources, and I really hope others will post their books, websites, poetry, UPG, etc, as well.

This is awesome but... stop giving me good books to read!!  Cheesy

I suspect my Celtic studies are going to keep me so busy with books I won't have time to actually do ritual.

This one is up and coming- not much is live, yet, but I have a feeling it's going to be a great resource.

*looks at bookmarks* No, I don't think so. In fact, I think most of the Brigit/Irish stuff I have I got from you!

Have any of you ever read "The Psychoanalysis of Fire" by Gaston Bachelard?

I found it most intoxicating. Might be worth including in your resource list, even if it is somewhat tangential...

Yep.  That one's on my list.  It's very interesting -- lot's of info about Irish traditions related to Imbolc.
