There was an old Chapel in Jim Ball's field. There is a holy water faunt from that chapel in the warty well. There is a Druids Altor in the same field. There is a holy well in Kenehan and there are three black fish in it. Every year on a Sunday on the seventh of July the well goes dry. It stays dry for three months. The field which is opposite our house is called Pairch glas.
