Siul Linn, a Bhríd* (Walk with us, Brighid)
*”Shoe lean ah Breejah”

Brigit, i.e. a poetess, daughter of the Dagda. This is Brigit the female sage, or woman of wisdom, i.e. Brigit the goddess whom poets adored, because very great and very famous was her protecting care. It is therefore they call her goddess of poets by this name. Whose sisters were Brigit the female physician [woman of leech craft, Brigit the female smith [woman of smith work]; from whose names with all Irishmen a goddess was called Brigit.
