Lough Currane, Waterville.
Lough currane is eight miles in circumference & contains several Islands on one of which-Church Island- are the remains of a Church erected in the sixth century by St. Finian Cam. The Saint's bee-hive house is almost intact.
It appears that Lough Currane was at first only a spring well with a huge cover, which was supposed to be always on save when local people took water from it & according to folklore a certain woman, through carelessness on her part, forgot to cover the well when she took a bucket of water & the result was that the well overflowed, drowned her & formed present Lough Currane.
