At Monastradeen there is a well called "Tubberarract" and there is another at Kilfree above Gurteen and one at Tourlestrane. On 11the August her feast day people go to these wells and do stations. People go around the well three times saying three rosaries, one each time they go around. There is a mug at the well and each time they go come in front of the well they dip the mug in the well and throw out three sups and drink three sups.

The water of these wells is supposed never to boil no matter what heat is made to bear it.
