3 Physical description of well and its surroundings
It is near Kilkee town, County Clare, a mile or so up the west coast road leading towards Carrigholt
The well is known for its curative properties to people's eyes and its moss has been exported to the USA for many years.
It is customary to leave mementos to loved ones who are sick or in need of help inside the well.
The well in Kilkee holds sentimental value to me. I left a part of my late wife's necklace in the Well just five years ago to remember her and the family who miss her.
