Lady's Well, Kealkil

Category: 
Holy well

This much venerated holy well can be found by passing through Kealkil cemetery and walking across the field. A stream runs the length of the field and the small well of clear water runs into it. A large and benevolent statue of Mary oversees the site which is beautifully kept, painted in blue and white. A jaunty stack of blue chairs are thoughtfully provided. Little niches containing statuary and offerings jostle attractively together. It has a wonderful feeling of peace and timelessness.
