HERSTORY SHINES A LIGHT ON STUDENT POWER AND IRISH GODDESSES FOR BRIGID’S DAY

#Herstory #StudentVoices #Brigit2022

To celebrate Brigid’s Day 2022, the Herstory Light Show takes place on Monday 31st January and Tuesday 1st February, illuminating iconic landmarks in Dublin and Kildare including Trinity College Dublin, The GPO, Kildare Cathedral, Kilkea Castle and more.

This timely event follows Herstory’s successful campaign to make Brigid’s Day Ireland’s new public holiday from 2023, in celebration of our Celtic Goddess, Matron Saint, and Imbolc, the ancient festival of Spring. This is the first public holiday named in honour of a woman and high time as Ireland already has 4 holidays named after men: Jesus, Patrick and Stephen. What a victory for all mná!

DUBLIN SHOW: BRIGID’S EVE, 31ST JAN

LIGHT SHOW PROGRAMME

5.30 - 8.00pm: Trinity College Dublin (front square)

The light show begins in Dublin city on Brigid’s Eve, 31st January. Herstory and the Irish Second-Level Students’ Union present STUDENT POWER, a spectacular #Herstory Light Show to amplify #StudentVoices and spotlight the causes close to their hearts: climate action, girl’s education, mental health, racism, migrants rights, preserving indigenous cultures and more. Never before in history have young people risen up together on this scale across the world. Power to students as they lead the light! Our very own Yuliya Petruk was nominated for her outstanding work as a student activist and tonight an impression of Yuliya will light up the gates of Trinity College!
