3 Physical description of well and its surroundings
Located in the front garden of a more recently built house on Glenageary Road. The well was previously located on land belonging to a house known as ‘Tinoran’ which translates to ‘House of the Cold Spring Well’. The well is fairly large and has a horseshoe shaped concrete wall around it. There is a large cross slab made of granite in the concrete wall.
Local stories state that monks from Monkstown visited the well on their way to Bulloch Harbour. Local priests made efforts to re-establish a pattern day for this well in the 1980s but the tradition only lasted a couple of years.
