Local Holy wells
Few holy wells are situated round Tullamore.
One of which I know is Durrow well.It is said that when St Columcille had his little Church in Durrow he used the water out of the well. It is situated near where Hugh deLAy first built a fine Castle.
There is another well in Kilbride three miles west of Tullamore. It is situated on a little hill in front of Kilbride grave-yard.
There is a well near the Tullamore Golf Links two miles south of Tullamore It is called St O'Hara's well.
