Brigid, saint and goddess

Saint Brigid of Kildare was born in the 5th century, a time when Ireland was transitioning from a country that practised ancient earth-based religion, to becoming a Christian one.
This transition between the two faith paths is written out in the traditions surrounding Brigid.
Before Brigid, there was a Celtic goddess with the same name. Part of the tribe of gods Tuath DΓ©, linked to the Celtic mother goddess Danu.
The two Brigids have become intertwined is because both their stories were mostly recorded by Christian monks. Let’s look at some of the similarities.
