The story of St. Abigail is rich with Irish lore and tradition. An angel told her she would find nine deer grazing in the place she was meant to spend her life. Abigail traveled the Irish countryside searching until she found the deer in County Cork. Bees held a special place in Abigail’s heart. She used honey to naturally treat illnesses and wounds! Abigail ministered to those in need until her “soul left her body,” which in Irish legend is represented by a flying bee.
