  Calling walkers, lovers of nature and spiritual seekers!

This walking pilgrimage, an Irish version of the famous Camino de Santiago, begins at Brigid’s Well and Shrine in Faughart near Dundalk Co. Louth on Saturday 28th  June. The pilgrimage will wind its way through quiet rural landscapes) Pilgrims will visit sites of spiritual significance, including Knockbridge, Hill of Slane and Hill of Tara and experience the magical landscapes of Donaghdea Forest Park and Robertstown along Grand Canal, en-route to Brigid’s monastic city in Kildare, arriving there on Sunday July 6th.

This unique co-curated pilgrimage offers participants an opportunity to
* Walk for 9 consecutive days through beautiful Irish countryside, visiting many sacred places.
* Take part in scheduled and spontaneous ceremonies.
*Learn about the ancient traditions and wisdom associated with Brigid , Goddess and Saint ,who stands at the heart of the Celtic Spiritual tradition
*Uncover layers of stories within ourselves and within the land of Ireland.
*Allow time and space to drop down into the deeper part of ourselves.

Each day we will walk 10 to 12 miles at a leisurely pace. A support car will travel with the pilgrimage at all times.

Karen Ward, RTE’s ‘Health Squad’ and BBC’s ‘Last Resort’ and Dolores Whelan, Celtic spiritual teacher and author of ‘Ever Ancient, Ever New: Celtic Spirituality in the 21st century’ know that there’s no such thing as coincidence. On St Brigid’s Day Feb 1st 2012 Karen and Dolores heard Anthony Murphy (co-author of Island of the setting Sun) speak about the position of stars in the Cygnus Constellation and a corresponding alignment that runs through some primary sacred places in Ireland, connecting Faughart in Co Louth with Kildare. As they listened it seemed that Brigids pilgrim path, which linked these two prominent places of Brigid devotion in Ireland, might be unfolding before their eyes! Many signs followed confirming their original prompting.

Having facilitated pilgrimages to sacred places in Ireland, Scotland and Peru for many years, Dolores and Karen had a strong desire to revive the ancient art of pilgrimage walking, once a central spiritual practise in Ireland. They believed that this practise allows people the time and space to step out of their ordinary lives and make contact with their inner world and find insights and wisdom that will support their life journey.

“During the pilgrimage the external movement of our feet is echoed by an internal movement into our deepest self and soul” – Dolores Whelan, 2013 For further details about this pilgrimage see www.brigidsway.ie. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter. To interview Dolores & Karen contact Lydia at
