It was an exciting week for us here in St. Brigid’s Well, when we got a call from RTE, our national broadcaster, who decided to pay us a visit.
Morning Ireland, Ireland’s most listened to radio programme, had decided to do a series this week on Ireland’s ‘holy places’ and selected St.Brigid’s Well as the focus for their Tuesday morning programme.
The aim of the series was to look at the appeal of attractions like St. Brigid’s Well and how they fit into a modern Ireland. And so they sent their award winning reporter Cian McCormack on the road to Liscannor who called into us to bring him on a tour of the St. Brigid’s Well. Cian also spent time talking with others locally and tourists who shared their varied and indeed touching insights. In particular he spent time with one of the very best local historians in our parish and a gifted storyteller, Mary Nagle, who gave a fascinating insight into the Well, its history and why its treasured so much by all here in Liscannor.

We loved meeting Cian and are very grateful for his visit but also that the sun came out for his studio for the broadcast, the location of which some of you may recognise:
