Throughout Ireland, the Saint Brigid Cross is associated with the arrival of springtime and with Ireland’s goddess, venerable Saint Brigid of Kildare. The Large Saint Brigid’s Cross is woven by hand of rushes harvested from the river Shannon. Traditionally the cross is found in many houses and shops throughout Ireland, mostly placed over entrance doors.
Today they have found new places within contemporary interiors, increasing the beauty of a room or traditionally acting as a timeless object of good fortune. The Large Saint Brigid’s Cross is a classic Irish housewarming gift.
The pins ie St.Brigids/Harp etc are study & make a statement in a diminutive quiet way. They are not brash or in your face. In this globalist sometime bland world they tell a wee story of Ireland. A civilising influence on the world despite its own great traumas.Wear with pride. And smile.

This cross reminds my family of our Grandmother. She moved to the US when she was 18. All of the children in my family have been to Ireland at least once with our Grandmother. We didn’t have a lot of money growing up but this is something our parents felt was worth much more than the monetary cost and none of us will ever forget our trip. This cross shows as a reflection near a porch that my Grandmother used to sit on. My Mother noticed it shortly after my Grandmother passed. I live in a different state and found the same cross reflection on my fence just this past year. We feel it is a sign from our Grandmother that she is watching over us. So, this year I bought 5 of these BEAUTIFUL crosses. One for my parents, mine and my 3 brother’s families as Christmas gifts. Everyone LOVED them. Denise was an AMAZING help through email. She even wrote a handwritten note on each tag, customer service at it’s very best. I have and will continue to spread the word about your Amazing business and the top notch customer service!!! Thank you so much!!! I was hoping to post some pics to go with the story, but don’t see that as an option.

The St. Bridgid’s cross has a special meaning for me and I was looking for a suitable wall hanging to remind me of a special event.
The St. Bridgid’s cross exceeded my expectations. It is beautifully made, and the large 20 inch size is perfect for the spot in my house where it is hung.
I also have to praise John in the sales department for his wonderful customer service. When the cross did not arrive within the time frame we expected, I had my doubts about whether it would ever arrive. John promptly and cheerfully made plans to send a replacement cross right away even though it was no fault of their own. I believe the delay was caused by my local post office.
As fate would have it, my cross arrived almost immediately after our last conversation, so it was not necessary to send out a replacement, but the professionalism of his customer service was very much appreciated and I would highly recommend both this product and World Prayer Gifts to anyone.
