A complete view of the site of St. Anne's holy well.


The holy well dedicated to St. Anne is under a small shrine with a grotto beneath a white statue of the saint. The statue was placed and unveiled by Rev. O' Byrne in 1930.
The water from this well is believed to cure eyes ailments and blindness, and there are many stories about people who had their eye problems relieved by this water. The water is also said to have the power to cure sore throats.
In the past people would visit this well on July 25th.

The setting is absolutely well-kept and relaxing, with a circular pond in the centre of a green, with small trees, shrubs and lots of flowers all around.
From the well, a short path goes uphill with the stations of the cross on the side.

Across the road from this holy well is a church with the same name.

The name of the village, Tomhaggard, comes from the Irish Tuaim Mosacra, the "Tomb of St. Moshagra", a saint who associated with Glendalough.
