About St. Fortiarnan's Holy Well

St. Fortiarnan's Holy Well in Killoughternane, Co. Carlow.

The well, which has been recently restored, has been visited through the centuries. According to local history, 'there was more than a newspaper could hold of cures of people who came from County Wexford across the mountains'. In the 19th century a local woman cleaning the well found a chalice and paten. These artefacts date to the late 16th century and may have been hidden in penal times by a priest who was celebrating open-air masses nearby.
