Why is Ireland called the “Emerald Isle”? Because it’s raining a lot, which of course is very good for the emerald-green grass! I was able to confirm this theory during my visit to Kildare, where St. Brigid once lived. Her sacred well is beautiful, located in a garden that invites to meditate and reflect, and adorned with a life-sized bronze statue.
And then the legendary Irish rain stopped just long enough for me to be able to sing a song for Brigid! The recording was made with a mobile phone and hasn’t been processed at all, which enables you to also hear the birdsong and the sound of the water.
As soon as the song was over, the clouds opened again. Luckily, I was able to throw my guitar back into its case before I got soaked! 🙂
