St. Ronan's Well

Sacred Well


From the NSA 1845;
'This mineral spring was formerly called the 'Dow-well', its water is now recognised as curative and it is resorted to by many visitors. Had it been known in ancient times as a medicinal water, without doubt the clergy would have taken advantage of that fact and dedicated it to some saint.'

As indeed they did- and it now bears the name of St. Ronan.
