Irish Holy Wells, part 3

(Irish holy wells, part 1; part 2.)



This post is going to be almost all photographs. St. Culain’s Well is one of the loveliest, most tranquil places in Ireland (and you know I have been ALL over). I’m so grateful to Bán for taking me there!






This is the best example of a “rag tree” you are likely to find. Leaving a trinket on a rag tree is a form of prayer for a loved one in need of healing.









The holy well is located just off the Lough Derg Way, and it overlooks this peaceful pond off the River Shannon.











A bit of pottery I found in the spring.





The last line cracks me up.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
