St Ciaran's Well - Kells
St Ciaran's Well and the High Crosses are roughly 5 km from Crossakiel in the direction of Kells. St Ciaran
(fl. C8 and perhaps biographer of St. Patrick) founded a monastery on the site. The Crosses were apparently
markers for the boundary of the site.

Nowadays there is a festival on the first Sunday in August to celebrate the curative power of the water from
Ciaran's Well.

Fore Abbey and Church - Fore
Fore Abbey is effectively the last trace of the once powerful Benedictine order in Ireland, investing the site with historical importance. The size and location of the ruins, however, will be more important to most visitors. Both are impressive and make for an ideal photo opportunity. Nearby outbuildings, further churches and Fore village (once a fortified town) add to the attraction.
