Located at the bottom of a S-facing slope and on the floodplain of a SW-NE section of the River Boyne c. 120m to the SE, and c. 700m W of the town. This is thought to be the location where St Lommán baptised Foirtchern, the son of Feidhlimidh and grandson of Laoghaire, the king of Tara (Athey 1955). It is described as St Patrick’s Well in gothic lettering on the 1836 and 1912 editions of the OS 6-inch map but it does not survive at this location. It had a cure for headaches and a rag tree (French 2012, 15, 16). Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 5 July, 2019
