Holy Wells of Co.Wicklow

Seeking Additional Information

By Rosaleen Durkin


My name is Rosaleen Durkin and I live in Glendalough.

For the past two years I have been researching and documenting the traditions locations and condition of the Holy Wells of Co.Wicklow.There are approx 120 in the county.I would be very interested in any stories anyone may have to assist with this or locations of any wells in Wicklow I may not have found already as I hope to publish a book when all the research is completed.This will include info on which wells are public access, the traditions and cure of each well and other local stories to do with the well.

My email is rosaleendurkin8@gmail.com if you have any information.Thanks.

Hi Rosaleen, This sounds like very  interesting research. We would be delighted if you could share some (e.g. a sample article) of this with our community heritage archive in due course. Best of luck with it

Hi Deirdre..would be happy to share info.I am focusing on the ones that are public access and easy to get to so people can visit easily.
