About one quarter of a mile due north of the little village of Donard and adjoining Donard Demesne (owner Mrs Davidson) at the foot of a sloping field gushes forth a spring known as "The Holy Well" at the foot of the Holy Hill. Here St Palladius baptised 500 in a day. He also built a church and left St Sylvester in charge ( no trace of the church remains)
A few yards south of Donard Village in the graveyard to the right of door of Old Church standing there, it's a very peculiar grave stone lying flat. This is known as the grave of St Sylvester.
(Told to me by Mr John Allen Donard and the late Doctor Allen Do.)
