St Deirbhile’s Holy Well, Belmullet, Co Mayo, Ireland

St Deirbhile's Holy Well
An annual pilgrimage takes place around 15th August

The story of St. Dairbhile goes something like this… born of a noble family of Meath she travelled to the Mullet peninsula to escape a noble suitor. However, she was followed, and gouged out her own eyes to make herself less attractive. When her horrified Prince left, she washed her eyes in the waters of a well that sprung from where they had fallen and her sight was restored.
