Brigidine Sisters and members of Cairde Bhride were delighted to welcome Her Excellency Else Berit Eikeland to Solas Bhride, Kildare on Thursday 1st August.
The purpose of her visit was to strengthen co-operation and bonding between pilgrims from Norway who are interested in visiting Ireland to walk pilgrim trails in the footsteps of the Irish saints. She has arranged for two groups to visit Solas Bhride to walk in the footsteps of St Brigid of Kildare.
The ambassador was amazed to hear of the many pilgrim groups from Norway that have already had contact with Solas Bhride through the years.
