St. Moling’s Holy Well Brosna

 When I was in Brosna lately, I spotted a sign for a holy well. I went to investigate.

The well is accessed by this grassy path beside  the churchyard.

The story of the well

 I then found myself in a field surrounded by cattle. The well is set in the middle of a farm.

The well is protected by this mound of stones.

 The entrance

This looked to me like a kneeler. Stones like this were placed at intervals around the perimeter wall. People probably knelt here while they did the rounds of the well.

This is the actual well.


Sue Ryder Shop is Closing

The manager of this shop was a very creative artist. I’ll miss her great window displays. Her last one, with a Halloween theme, complete with creepy clowns, was typical of her topical imaginative approach to window display.
