A SURVEY of the stone-built wells of Annaghdown Parish could serve as an example for other areas to follow.

So said Conor Newman, former chair of the Heritage Council, at the launch of the booklet in Corrandulla Old Girls’ School on Friday night.

The survey was conducted by members of the Annaghdown Heritage Society, who were inspired by the restoration of Tobair a’ Bhaile by the Cloonboo Tidy Village Committee.

The work on this well, located behind Cunniffe’s of Cloonboo, was done by members of the Scully and Greaney families, whose ancestors used and maintained the well.
