St Patrick's Well
Photographer: Hemphill, William Despard
Medium: Photographic print
"In a sequestered vale, about two miles west of Clonmel, and half a mile from the River Suir, a well of the purest and most liquid water is continually bubbling up, and pouring its contents, through two small circular openings cut in the rock, into a little stream that runs placidly through the demesne of Oaklands, to empty itself into the large pond at Marlfield. This little well, said to have been 'a spring that cured many distempers,' and consecrated by St. Patrick himself, is now but too often the scene of those degrading superstitions and panances that are so common in our island."
