The Mass rock in the foreground and the holy well in the background.


This holy well is easy to spot. There's a fence all around and there's a bench as well for those visitors who want to take a moment to relax.
The holy well is dry now. In front of it is a Mass rock, a place where people gather to celebrate the Mass during the Penal Times.
On the day we visited the place we met a lovely lady in her eighties who told us tens of stories about the area, the war, the poverty and all other things of her youth.
