A large number of prototype Celtic icons were painted in the 1970s by Father David (God rest him) of Walsingham.  He formed an Orthodox Brotherhood of Saint Seraphim at Walsingham, laypeople of whom several became priests.  One of the iconographers from that period who is still painting beautiful icons is Leon Liddament.

Sunday of All Saints of Britain and Ireland

Russian Church Institutes Feastday of All Saints of Britain and Ireland

(in English)  http://www.interfax.ru/e/B/politics/28.html?id_issue=11842406(in
(in Russian) http://www.interfax.ru/r/B/politics/2.html?id_issue=11842306


Moscow, August 21, 2007, Interfax - The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church instituted a holiday to honour Christians who lived on the islands of Great Britain and Ireland and were canonized before the 1054 schism that divided Christendom into the Western Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches.

The holiday will be an annual event observed on the third Sunday after Pentecost in the Julian Calendar.

The Synod, which met on Tuesday, also ordered that these saints' names be included in the Menology after their Christian exploits have been studied.

The Synod's decision follows an appeal of March 3, 2007, in which the diocese of Sourozh, a Russian Orthodox diocese having the islands of Great Britain and Ireland for its territory, asked the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Alexy II, and its Holy Synod to institute a holiday for pre-1054 British and Irish saints.

All Saints of Britain and Ireland pray to God for us.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Thank you for these links!  I've been looking for icons of Ss. Brigid and Aidan.

Many of the icons of these saints are cartoonish, roughly-painted ("rustic" which retains spiritual power is a rare thing indeed), or schlock. I have very few "good" icons of these saints on file as a result, to my dismay. Dimitry Shkolnik and the nuns at the Convent of St Elizabeth are two of the few sources I've come across who have painted good icons of a few Celtic saints, HTM has as well.
