An Tobar (The Well)

2004, 52 minutes

Every year many thousands of people visit Holy Wells around Ireland.  Some are large national gatherings and others are very small and very local.  In An Tobar we visit some extraordinary Holy Wells around Ireland recording a living tradition that predates the arrival of Christianity on this island.


"Directed with eagle-eyed flair by Anna Rackard and Adrian McCarthy this is a slick but humane film."
Liam Fay, Sunday Times Jan 29 2005.
