This is a time of opportunity and Féile Bríde will explore what can be done - and what is already being done - by ordinary people to save our planet. Full price €15, concessions €12; (see booking link).

Féile Bríde is part of a week-long series of events taking place in Kildare organized by the Brigidine Sisters and Cairde Bríde. Organized by Afri in partnership with St. Patrick's Missionary Society Kiltegan and Cairde Bríde.
