3 Physical description of well and its surroundings

Branigan records that “St Sabh’s Well is located within an opening in a wooded area to the rear of the Marlay Nursing Home Rathfarnham. It is comprised of very large granite boulders, approached by a flight of steps and overhung by a holly tree. At present, a number of the boulders have dislodged and are lying in the stairwell and the entire site is very muddy” (Branigan 2012: 95).
