Half a mile upstream from Roe Park is a Holy Well within the current Roe Valley Country Park. Accoring to an old sign nearby: ‘reputed to be the spot where St Colmcille performed many acts of healing. Indeed, it is said to this day that the water from the well has healing qualities.’ Wow, this place is exactly what a place of ancient spiritual significance should look like. Places like this will have been venerated for many centuries and may even predate Christian times. The cut stone well surround is enclosed on three sides by the roots of a huge sheltering tree, itself of some age. There are no modern signs or clutter and the old path is largely obscured by leaves. The Northern Ireland Monuments and Buildings Record notes that ‘there was a tradition of monks coming here from Drumachose & Tamlaght Finlagan to hold services’.
