St. Mullen's Well (Brosna, Co. Kerry.)
St. Mullen's well is situated in the picturesque historic town of Brosna in East Kerry. In the dim an distant past, St. Mullin - a holy Bishop was preaching to a large crowd of Pagans at the foot of Lavalla hill where the blessed well is situated. He saw that his words were making a deep impression on the pagans and he was hoping to make many converts. When the Saint had concluded his sermon a tall handsome blind man said: If you claim God has such power, I'd like you would give some demonstration of that power. "If I representing God ." said the Saint "gave sight to your eyes would you be converted?" "Gladly and willingly," answered the blind chieftain. Thereupon the Saint, lifting his crozier above his head prayed long and fervently and then struck the ground three times with the end of the crozier. Immediately water gushed from the ground and when the Saint bathed the blind chieftain's eyes with the water and immediately his sight was restored. The chieftain and all his followers were converted on the spot. Every month of May hundreds of people pay "rounds" at the well and many cures especially to the eyes have been effected.
