Roundwood notes week August 19th


The annual Pattern Day Walk from Moneystown Community Centre to Lady’s Well Ballymanus Upper on Carrick Mountain will take place Sunday 25th August, leaving Moneystown at 6 pm.  The route is five and a half miles in total (good walking shoes recommended and no dogs allowed!).  Suitable for older children accompanied by adults.  The route is along the road and then on Coillte roads.  Lady’s well is an ancient holy well that is marked on the Neville Maps of 1760 as an important site.

The well was rediscovered in 2013 and there has been a walk every year on or close to the original pattern day – August 15th.  There will be a short talk on the history and traditions of the holy wells and also relevant local history.

If you want to play music, read a poem or sing a song feel free to join in as singing, dancing etc were all part of the traditions of pattern days and visits to the well.
