Yes, when I was young St. Brigids Day was better observed than it is now. Many people used to go down to St Brigid's well in Uactarach outside Ballinamore to do Stations there. As well as I can remember before going into the grave-yard, which is almost a mile from the well, the complete Rosary of 15 decades is recited either together in groups or individually. Then one Pater and Ave is said in the Churchyard, and after this the complete Rosary if 15 decades is said between the churchyard and the holy well. The litany of the Blessed Virgin is said after the last decade.
