The Holy Well at Tobernault

On our way back to Sligo, we visit the Holy Well at Tobernault, which is an age-old pilgrimage site. In olden times the Druids would come and celebrate Mass here when people were forbidden to congregate. There is a legend that says the Well’s waters have healing power for ailments of the eye and the head. A brisk stream flows from the well making a constant soothing musical sound. Secluded and sheltered from the elements candles burn here year round. The gravel walks have religious limestone Stations of the Cross as well as granite stones announcing the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary. One feels a unique atmosphere of peaceful and healing tranquility. Part of the Lough Gill Tour
