  1. Near Roisín (magCromcha) is a Holy Well and each year people went to pay rounds there. One night as some soldiers were passing this place they desecrated the well. They broke the holy pictures and destroyed all the place around the Well.
    On the next day when some people visited it they found that the well had taken up its position in the other side of the road.
