Lá Féile Bríghde

An fear ag an doras:-
"Gabhaidh ar bhur nglúnaibh
Fosclaidh bhúr súile
Agus leighidh isteach Bríghid"

Muinntir an tighe istig:-
"Sé do bheatha, sé do beatha, sé do bheatha a Bríghid"

An Bhrídeog = bábóg tuighe; carried from house to house. Bearer says "Honour the Brideóg"
Brat Bhrígdhe orrainn i n-éadan an uile
Crosóg Bhríghde i gcró is i gcomhnigdhe
I bhfad uainn gach olc agus gach urchóid
I gcrainn is i gclocha agus i mbeanna fuara fairrge.
