Our Guest Today

Orlagh Minxie Costello currently describes herself as a Pagan Catholic who works mostly with Brigid, in any form she chooses to present herself, within the Irish pantheon, but sure as we all know, the rest of the family invite themselves over from time to time. Orlagh runs a group on Facebook called Brigid’s Forge, where Brigid in any of her guises is discussed. Orlagh writes a blog, also called Brigid’s Forge, dedicated to Brigid, daily practice, devotions, reviews and anything else she fancies writing about.  Orlagh is involved in women’s circles in various ways and practices energy work for fun. By day, she masquerades as an engineer.
