    In the parish of Tulsk there is a well called the Ougula Well. It was here that St Patrick baptised Eithne and Fidelma, the daughters of Leary the High King of Ireland in the fifth century. There is no patron for this well.
    In the parish of Aughrim there is a well called St Bride's well. It is called after St Brigid. There is a patron to this well from the fifteenth of August to the eight of September.
