There are a lot of blessed wells in this parish which are dedicated to Saint Coleman. There is one in Kiltartan where he was baptized It is situated on the right side of the Gort-Galway road. This well can cure sore eyes or sore feet and if a person slept overnight there they would get cured. The person would have to have a lighted candle near the well while he would be sleeping there.
The people pay visits to this well on the feast day of St Colman and they say the rosary there.
There is another well in Kilmacduagh which is called St Colman's well also. It is situated about 25 yards from the Clare border. It is said that when St Colman knelt and prayed in this place a well sprung up. The well is not deep and it's waters are beautiful and cool.
This water can never be (spoiled) boiled. It was frequently tried by many persons but everybody failed.
There was a brown fish in this well
