Amanda Clarke offers insights from locals: “It is said that in Skibbereen and the district are many blessed wells. There is a well in Castlelands from which the water keeps fresh a long while. People visit the well on the twenty ninth of June. Two holy eels are in the well--interfering with these eels (touching or harming them) is sure to bring negative repercussions.
