Does anyone know why the URL tag doesn't translate correctly into a link when wrapping the Brigid's cross link?

My theory is it's to do with the apostrophe, whether disguised with a % code or not. Is that it? Any other tricks to slither it through, short of using a tinyurl?

Almost certainly the apostrophe. I'd either use the URL raw (ie: just post it in) as it's not too long and won't cause page format problems. Or, tinyurl it. Sometimes it's just not worth the hassle of figuring out how to do it better.

Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it.
