Celebrations in honour of St. Columcille at the well named for him on Oldcourt Road, Dublin.
From St Augustine:
Let them deny themselves, that is, not put their trust in themselves. Let them take up their cross, that is, put up with all the affronts of the world for the love of Christ. Persist, persevere, endure, bear up under the delay. In this way you will bear your cross. - Sermon 96,9
