Artist's Description

This is the Well of the White Cow, located on the South side of the Hill of Tara in County Meath, Ireland. The area is under siege by the construction of a superhighway, the M-3, with a multitude of archaeological and historical sites that are well over five thousand years old being laid waste as I write.

The well is also known as ‘The Caprac of Cormac’ (Well of the Numbering of The Clans), ‘Liaig Dail Duib Duirb’ (Dark Eye), ‘Tuath Linde’ (The Healer) and ‘Tipra Bo Finne’ (The Well of The White Cow). The well had lain in disrepair for many centuries, until March 21st, 2002, when restoration work was begun. The ones who did the work did a marvelous job, as it is beautiful to look upon. Just below the well is a spout from which the water trickles. We did not touch the water, so as not to contaminate it. As a matter of fact, there is a rock on top of the well on which is written “This well is sacred. Please do not drop anything in her waters”. The waters source comes deep from under the Hill of Tara, and our ancestors drank the waters from this very well. It was awe-inspiring to stand before it.
