3 Physical description of well and its surroundings

Branigan records that “St Mobii’s Well, also known as St Broc’s Well, is located on a small green area in the estate of Eglinton Square, Donnybrook. It was previously situated in the kitchen garden of a large house called Ballinguile, now demolished. St Mobii (not to be confused with St Mobhi) was a nun who settled in the locality. The well house is a free standing rustic cupola of mortared local stone with a gate attached. Unfortunately, the well has been dry for many years” (Branigan 2012: 85).
