To celebrate St Brigid and the traditions associated with her, Kildare town Heritage Centre are recreating her cloak with willow and wishes all this week.

They are asking you to drop in to make your wish and tie it onto the willow lady.

“Thanks to Willow Wonder and local artist Beth Murphy for bringing the beautiful willow lady to us for the week,” said Tom McCutcheon from the Heritage Centre.

"People really like it - there are about thirty or forty wishes on it already. It will be out tomorrow for people and hopefully Thursday, all day Friday and Saturday. If she' s not out she's upstairs and people can come in and make their wishes."

This is just one of a number of events to celebrate the life and times of St Brigid in Kildare town this month.
