The Holy Well in Borrigone was next to Dennis Hayes' house. A woman came one night and washed clothes out of it. When the Hayes got up next morning the well was shifted out as far as O'Conors in the road.
People also took some water out of it and they put it down to boil they left it there for at least one month and still it never boiled. It is now visited every year on the 15th day of August by hundreds of people.
