Persistence Pays

I've long appreciated Pope St. Pius X, and so I'm linking to a post from a traditionalist blog as was requested. This post on Ireland also looks interesting:
Saint Brigid and the Blessed Virgin Mary
A careful and reverent study of the Irish traditional appelation of St. Brigid of Kildare as "Mary of the Irish," contrasting the approaches of the various ancient Irish sources such as the Hymn to St. Brigid of St. Ultán of Ard Breccan and the Life of St. Brigid by Cogitosus.

The Kildare Poems and the Friar who owned them
A fascinating article examining the possible origins, authorship, contents and style of a cycle of poems known as 'The Kildare Poems' as well as the use that they were put to by itinerant Franciscan Friars in medieval Ireland.
