Fighting for the Irish

Brigid Tapestry

The healing power of music, the joyful celebration of faith—Teach Bhríde (the House of Brigid) seeks to enrich these elements of the Notre Dame spirit in a people who helped form this institution’s mission and heart: the Irish themselves.

The House of Brigid began in 2009, when recent graduates of Notre Dame, aided by generous donors from the Notre Dame community and the Notre Dame Folk Choir, started a yearlong service program to assist in spiritual ministry and liturgical music in the Catholic Church in Ireland.

Their ministry focuses primarily within the Diocese of Ferns at the Church of the Annunciation in Clonard, County Wexford, Ireland, but a second branch is projected to begin serving Dublin within the next few years.
