- Killamery is a village in Co. Kilkenny. It is situated at the foot of a hill known as Carroll's Hill. In this village stands an old church now in ruins. In the graveyard of this church is a holy well. There is also an old cross which was brought there by night by someone unknown. On the top of the cross lies a stone which is supposed to cure a headache instantly if placed on the top of the head. There are only seven crosses like this one in Ireland.
