Bean an Ti means woman of the house in Irish and no business is conducted without the approval of this most important member of the Irish family!It is said that up until the 1950s on St. Brigid's day the "Bean an Tí" would pass the Brigid's cross around her body three times in front of the house. She would then encircle the house three times. Then the cross would be welcomed into the front door by the family and hung over the kitchen door, becoming the heart of the house.
