The structure of the holy well is at the end of this field.


I was unable to find the name of this holy well, so I give it the name of the townland.

Unfortunately the well was dry on the day of our visit.
A semicircular stone wall encloses the well, and above the well a small shrine has been built. This has a small window with the statue of Our Lady inside. Next to the shrine is a tall ringed cross with expanded terminals. A narrow passage is on the west (265°) side of the semicircular enclosure.
The whole structure has been painted in light blue, the colour of Our Lady's shroud.
The well itself is deep and lined with stones.
