- Holy Wells
Tobar Iosa, a well outside Cahir. It is a spring well. It is divided into two parts and each part is surrounded by a stone wall. Out of the second well a nattow stream is running. People who are suffering from any ailments and who wish to get cured must do "rounds". They walk up and down the stream in their bare feet a few times. The water is piercingly cold but the person must bear it if they want to get cured. Then they walk around the top of the second well three times and take a drink of water from the first well.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
