There is a holy well on our land. It is said that It is a blessed well When my father was young people used to come And bathe their eyes at it It was supposed to cure sore eyes. people tied a piece of rag on the bush beside it when they came. There are several big stones around it The one over it has carving on it. My grandfather did it. We are known as the "well" Mulligan because there are other families of Mulligan lived in Ticknock. We always had the Well farm.
