Brigit Statue & Tealight Candle Holder
In Irish mythological cycles, Brighid (or Brighit), whose name is derived from the Celtic brig or "exalted one", is the daughter of the Dagda making her one of the Tuatha de Dannan. Her two sisters were also called Brighid, they were associated with healing and crafts. The three Brighids were typically treated as three aspects of a single deity, making Brighid a classic Celtic triple goddess.
The Celtic Goddess Brigid is beloved as the muse of poetic inspiration and the mistress of the healing arts. She is also associated with smithcraft, which held special import for the early Celts. The site of her well still exists in Ireland, and it's eternal flame is still quietly attended by eighteen maidens. The Catholic Church made her a saint due to her fervent worshippers, who accepted Christ, but could not endorse a religion that excluded her.
