The low rectangular enclosure that houses the well.


Tullylease is a tiny group of houses but has interesting treasures, like this holy well dedicated to St. Beirechert.
St. Beirechert was a monk from North of England who, along with his father and brother, arrived in Ireland in 664, soon after the Synod of Whitby.
He stopped in Tullylease and founded a monastery, its traces and ruins are still visible today.
A holy well has been dedicated to him.
There's a small house painted in white over a pond. The well is surrounded by a low rectangular enclosure.
Next to this enclosure is the outline of a stone building, probably an early church or oratory.
This place is part of the rounds done during the Feast of St. Beirechert on the 18th of February.
St. Beirechert's holy well is about 70 metres southwest from St. Mary's holy well.
