  1. Beside Tinoran crossroads on the side of the road leading to Moone is another holy well which is called Tubber Gorry. This well is not far distant from Tobar Súl.
    There are several large stones about this well and it is supposed that when people paid a round at this well they knelt at each of these rocks as part of the ceremony.
    The water of this well is supposed to cure many ailments, but I have not heard what the ailments were.
