- Tubbersool (Eye Well)V convenient to this place.
In centre of an orchard.
Drains itself into another well situated along roadside.White thorn bush.
Local tradition - Cromwell, when visiting Gormonston Castle, came to well and profaned it by washing his feet in it. He also allowed his horse to pollute well. The well dried up and remained so for many years. A priest visited the place some time after and blessed this well. Immediately the water returned and today it is overflowing.As in Balscadden- people use this water for eye troubles.Mr Howard living nearby supplied me with above information. He has it handed down from his grandfather dating back over 100 years.Same map as other well.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
