Clare’s holy wells project

Our own Michael Houlihan was involved in the Clare Holy wells project which formally launched on St Brigid’s Day, Tuesday, February 1. The aim of this project was to survey and document 237 holy wells in Clare.

The detailed information, maps and photographs are collated in a website which is available here.

The project was supported by Clare County Council and funded by The Heritage Council and Creative Ireland.
