Gate on Strand Road

In direction Portmarnock village, just after the Portmarnock Hotel, you come to the Artworks Cafe, go as far as the next bus-stop, then on your left hand side in the wall is the gate into a field with a track leading directly to the old graveyard.
(The field used to be a cattle field that John Ryan of Tamango Nightclub used to graze cattle on, a local joke being that he put a nicer gate on his new ‘farm’…. ).

There was a Well near the church, where the locals used to celebrate ‘Patrons Day’ in August and make rounds of the Well.
The Well-pilgrimages stopped when Mr. Jameson diverted the water to the near by cattle pond and filled the Holy Well.
