St. Brigid of Kildare Gathering


Pinta provided mentoring support to the Solas Bhride Community when they were hosting their St. Brigid of Kildare Gathering Festival in September 2013. We are very happy to be a part of this very successful event and have received a great testimonial.

“An initial meeting with Peter Hanan and Orla Cullen, who listened to our vision, and subsequently crafted a submission to IPB for funding on our behalf, prepared the way for us in hosting an international St. Brigid of KildareGathering Festival, in Kildare Town, from 15 to 21 September 2013. Helen Cahill of Pinta was assigned to working with us in the delivery of project management skills, event promotion skills and event management over the course of the planning and management of the Kildare Event. Helen also did enormous work in facilitating meetings, and the quality of her written material and follow up on meetings was exceptional. She kept us focussed and ensured a successful outcome.  Pinta’s professional approach, its commitment to our project and its ongoing mentoring support were instrumental in making the event so successful.  The acquisition of a wide variety of project management skills throughout the process will be hugely beneficial to Solas Bhride when it opens a new purpose built Spirituality Centre in 2014.  Solas Bhride has no hesitation in recommending Pinta for its creative services and its capacity to make the seemingly impossible, possible. Overall, working with Pinta has been a challenge and a blessing.”
