Hill of Allen Becomes a ‘Beacon of Hope’ for St. Brigid’s Day

Into Kildare has lined up a series of events and celebrations to mark St Brigid’s Day. Among the highlights of ‘Feile Bhride’ in Kildare will be the lighting of the Hill of Allen on January 31st, when the tower at the top of the hill will be immersed in a white light to symbolise hope for the new year.

This is the third time that the Hill of Allen will be illuminated, the lighting up will take place from 6pm to Midnight on the 31st January to mark the ‘eve’ of St Brigid’s Day and will remain lit up on 1st February.
