Every year the pupils of Cullen National School make St. Brigid's Crosses which are blessed at mass on the last Sunday before 1st February (St. Brigid's Day). 

Brigid's crosses are associated with Brigid of Kildare, one of the patron saints of Ireland. The crosses are traditionally made in Ireland on St Brigid's feast day, 1st February. Many rituals are associated with the making of the crosses. Traditionally they were set over doorways and windows to protect the home from any kind of harm.

Community Volunteers upskilling our pupils and providing their expertise and skill in the area of weaving and making crosses with rushes.
