The ancient spring at Cullion is a place of celebration to the Celtic Goddess Brigid during the Celtic festival marking the beginning of spring.
A mass takes place here on St Brigid’s Day, 1st February, each year. There is a small chapel facing the well and a circular walk takes you by a series of stone plaques or stations leading to the spring. These features and the mound surrounding the well were added in 1956.
