9th Century Holy well, St Mullins, County Carlow, Ireland
Each year on the Sunday before July 25th, thousands gather from many parts of Ireland and abroad to take part in the historic pilgrimage, which now consists of Holy Mass at the penal altar to drink water from the holy well and visit the graves. Many say that for generations hundreds of “cures” have taken place at this hallowed spot and people still go there to pray for help in times of distress and ailment.
