CSHS Lecture re Holy Wells of Ireland

Cahir Social and Historical Society will host a lecture by well-known local historian, Seánie Lonergan, on "The Holy Wells of Ireland" in Cahir House Hotel at 8pm on Thursday, 23rd March. Seánie's interest in this topic was inspired by the realisation that these sites, once so important, especially during the Penal Laws, had been largely forgotten by their local communities. So, with Kieran Ryan on camera, he spent last summer researching the history, legends and folklore of many of our local Holy Wells, such as our own Tobar Íosa, Berihert's Kyle, St. Pekaun's, St. Kieran's in Tubrid and St. Malachy's in Clogheen. Seánie will share his findings with us at next Thursday night's lecture. Admission €3 Members and €5 Guests
