There are hundreds of Holy Wells all over Ireland, many of them still in use. They vary in appearance; some are simple, decorated with rounded river pebbles, whilst others are highly ornate, adorned with holy statues, medals, rosary beads, flowers and candles. This book captures the unique spirit of these sites through stunning photography and text, exploring the individuality of each, their many forms and settings, and the assorted personal offerings that decorate them.
