St. Augustine's Well on the shores of Lough Atalia (along Lough Atalia road) is one of only two surviving holy wells in the vicinity of Galway and has been revered by generations of locals for its healing power, particularly for those with eye problems. In 2000 the Trust's Community Employment scheme completed a major renovation of the location which involved improving access to the well, the erection of a retaining stone wall and the installation of a bench and commemorative plaque on site. A beautiful stone cross was also commissioned by the Trust to replace the concrete one which previously identified the site. The result is a wonderfully restored holy well, refurbished in consultation, and co-operation, with the local Residents Association.
