© St Dominic's Well
St Dominic's well is situated in Rossbrien on land owned
by Shannon Development. The well is about four feet deep and has steps
leading down to it. According to Seán Spellissy, the original name
of the well may have been a corruption of Tobar Rí an Domhnaigh
or 'the well of the King of Sunday'.
It is believed that Tobar Rí an Domhnaigh may have been
a corruption of St Modhomhnoc. However, there was two saints of this name
and their feastday fall on February 13 and May 18 respectively. There
are no devotions at the well nowadays. Although it is partially overgrown,
there is still water in the well. The water was believed to cure eye ailments.
One legend about the well is that a travelling showman washed a bear in
the well and it dried up.
