Station are performed at this well on the 14th of January the feast of St Feichin by people having devotion to the Saint, the stations may also be performed any Friday or Sunday during the year.
Michael Mulkerrin a man of seventy years living quite near the island, said when a young boy he got a very bad pain in his right hip and could not walk. His mother decided to take him to St Feichins well. He had to be carried there; his mother accompanying him did the usual station. He was able to walk home quite well and cured. He is still living; and remembers it well and has great devotion to St. Feichin ever since.
