There are certain wells in this country that have certain cures. There is a well in the townland of Cleenrath and it is called "the Rose Well" this Well cures the disease of Rose. They used to get a drop of the water and rub it to the sore and in a very short time it would be better. If they did not believe in it, it would kill them.
