Holy Wells
There is a holy well in Beaugh Dunmore Co. Galway called "Tobar na Caltra". The people make a pilgrimage there in the month of July on three sundays in succession. They go around the well seven times and the last time they go on their bare knees.
There is a bush near the well and when the pilgrimage is made the pilgrims hand something on this each for his own private intentions. A lady got an altar erected there and blessed. Her name is Miss Hoban who is still living.
