The Cailleach is heavily pregnant with the spark of life and hope of the returning sun. Brigid takes on the role of the midwife, aiding the Cailleach's labour. The Cailleach gives birth to The Golden Boy - the spark of life for the coming year. The Cailleach then continues her transformational journey and returns to her rock form.
