St. Eigne’s Well
St. Eigne’s Well it is also known as Saint Colmcille’s Well is situated at the top of the Mamore Gap in the Urris Hills on the northern side.
There have been pilgrimages to this spot for centuries taking place on the 15th August to celebrate Our Lady’s feast day.
A stone at the well reads – “St. Eigne’s Well. The well of St. Eigne from whom the adjoining Desertegney takes its name. He was probably one of the Céile Dé. There has been a pilgrimage to this well for centuries.”
The Céile Dé were Druids who saw the coming of The Christ Consciousness and preached in both Ireland and Scotland long before the first missionaries.
Beside the well, there is a Grotto to Our Lady.
