There are three holly wells in this parish, but the one I know most about is Saint Patrick’s, and it is situated in the townland of Garry-More.
This well is one and a half-miles west of the village of Aughrim. Some years ago, the people used to go there to do Stations for, teeth-aches, head-aches, or sore throats, and several other complaints.
In order to do the stations, they would first take off their shoes and stockings, and then go round fourteen little mounds three times, and certain prayers had to be said at each mound. They would wash their hands and faces, and also whatever sores they would have, with some of the water from the well.
They would have to leave some little thing after them; such as a nail, a button, a penny, or some little thing like that before leaving
