Saving St Brigid’s is the unique story of a small rural community who, in the spirit of their Irish rebel ancestors, stood up for what they believed in. The Premier of Victoria, Dr Denis Napthine, launched the book at the Koroit Irish Festival, on 26th April 2014.

Here, the Premier shares his memories and the author share’s her motivations for writing the book.
