Dublin’s Bank Holiday Parade Honours Women

During the February bank holiday weekend, Dublin City will host a festival that includes a march honouring women.

Taking place around the city from February 1st to February 5th, Brigit: Dublin City Celebrating Women is back for its third year.

The purpose of the Dublin City Council event, which bears the name of the Celtic goddess Brigit, is to highlight women’s experiences, highlighting their influence on society and signaling the arrival of spring.

Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithi de Roiste commented on the effort, stating that it is the largest city-wide program to date.

“Brigit 2024 offers us the chance to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of Irish women in the past and present and to celebrate the influence they continue to have on our society,” the speaker continued.

On Bank Holiday Monday at 4 p.m., the Brigit – Dublin City Celebrating Women Parade will make its debut through the center of Dublin City.

An unusual blend of walkers, rollerskaters, bikers, and performers will parade through the center of Dublin as part of a celebration of inspirational women, beginning at Wolfe Tone Square.

The march will end at O’Connell Street’s renowned GPO.

The Brigit Rising Concert, which features Dublin-born singer and composer Rachael Lavelle, Dublin alt-pop group Soda Blonde, and poet Laoighseach Ní Choistealbha, will take place at the Abbey Presbyterian Church at 7.30 p.m. after it.

Brigit 2024 embraces the first beginnings of Spring and honors the life and heritage of the Celtic goddess Brigit. Come experience a variety of events with us, including walking tours, fairs, concerts, and workshops, as we raise the voices of those who best represent Brigit’s spirit.
