HOLY WELL WALK

Join us on a walk to the newly rediscovered Lady’s Well on Carrick Mountain.  This well had its pattern day on 15th August but the tradition ended in 1798.  The wlk to the well is to visit it on the original pattern day. Holy wells had many old traditions and people used the wells as a gathering place for music, dancing and fun with one day a year being a pattern day.   If you have a song to sing or a poem to read that would be appreciated.  We meet at Moneystown church on 15th August at 11a.m as the well is hard to find.  It takes approximately 30 minutes to walk to the well.  Wear comfortable walking shoes.  The well is at the side of the Coillte roadway.  There will be a short talk at the well on the history and traditions of Holy Wells and how Lady’s Well was rediscovered in 2013.
