ABOUT THE HOLY WELL
“Holy Wells” in Ireland hold a unique role as symbols of the Irish culture and a connection with the natural environment. The holy well tradition is believed to date back to the pre-Christian era, they had deities and performed ceremonies at the springs. The well water itself is extremely important, particular minerals and elements have been found at a number of sites. This is due to the water coming up from deep under the ground, springing out of the earth in its purest form. The spring waters of Ireland have always been and are still being collected and used for blessings, protection and cure.
The glass water vial and pendant contain the water from my local Holy Well, Saint Brigid's Well, Shanagarry, Newcastle West, Co. Limerick. This well commemorates the visit of St Bridget to the area, around 500AD. Bridget moved some stones from the ground, and a well sprang up where the stones had been. A life-size statue of the saint has been placed beside the well. Prayers are said there annually on February 1st, St Bridget’s Day which is celebrated world wide.
