Hill of Tara Landscape : St John's Well

Celebrated on Midsummer Day - St John's Feast Day - 24th June.

There is a curious legend attached to this well in Warrenstown. It is said that John the Baptist, in the Holy Land, struck a rock with his staff. 

The point of the staff came out at Warrenstown and the spring gushed forth.

A sun symbol is formed by shadow patterns on the left side of the montery cypress trunk....

 

and a yellow snail's shell expresses the golden energy that is often warming this place.
