St. Catherine's Holy Well

St. Catherine’s Well is situated in St. Catherine’s Regional Park exactly on the county border of Kildare and Dublin.

Folklore has it that the well could cure sore eyes. A statue of St. Catherine stood atop the arch but unfortunately this has disappeared. The park is open all year to the public and many people pass this well and wonder what it is. I would love if there was a plaque or sign for visitors, especially children who find it fascinating.
