There are two wells near one another in the farm of Frank Quilter of Ballyrehan Lixnaw Co Kerry. They are used by the local people to get a supply of water for drinking and cooking. A woman who lives there to the present day told me when she was a school girl 50 years ago the P.P. of Lixnaw asked her to take him a bottle of the water of Tobar Dromanna, every day to drink it.They are not looked upon as Blessed wells but still the local people hold them in respect and like to get water from them.
