Situated along the ancient pilgimage trail to Lough Derg in County Donegal can be found a holy well, known locally as St Patrick's Well or Tober Patrick.
According to tradition St Patrick stopped here to rest himself and quench his thirst on returning from a period of Lenten Sacrifice on a nearby island on Lough Derg. Many within the local community celebrate this event each year on St Patrick's Day while local legend also has it that the water from St Patrick's well can help ease the pain of toothache.
Close to the well is 'the Plain of the Church' or Magherakeel Monastic Site, dating from early Christian times (6th century). A small section of the wall remains of what was St Caireall's Church which was probably built by the Franciscans.
