Tobar Naomh Deirbhile (St. Deirbhile’s Well) is located at Fál Mór. Legend tells us that St. Deirbhile travelled to this part of Erris to escape a lover in whom she was not interested. However, he followed her and proposed marriage to her. She questioned him as to why he wished to marry her or what attracted him to her and he replied it was her beautiful eyes. With this, she plucked out her eyes and threw them from her. When her horrified admirer left, she washed her eyes in the waters of a well and her sight was restored. This marks the spot of St. Deirbhile’s well and it is alleged that water from this well has curative properties for eye complaints. A pilgrimage takes place annually to the well on August 15 in honour of St Deirbhile.
St. Deirbhile’s Church (Teampall Deirbhile) is located not far from the well.
