Trinity Well, an ancient holy well near Charles Fort. A holy well is a spring or other small body of water usually revered first by pagans, then Christians. This well is flanked on either side by the "Old" & "New" (pre and post circa 1800) cemeteries. I'm not sure of the significance around this particular well, but it is one of approximately 356 in Co. Cork alone.
I found it to be lovely, peaceful and a perfect spot to remove my boots and let my tired feet revive in the damp grass.
Charles Fort (Dún Chathail) is a star shaped fort located on the water's edge, at the southern end of the village of Summer Cove, on Kinsale harbour, Co. Cork. First completed in 1682, it
remained in use as a British Army barracks for two hundred years afterwards, before being relinquished by British forces following the Angloi-Irish treaty of 1921. The fort fell out of use after being burned by retreating anti-Treaty forces in 1922.

The booklet I found in the tearoom gave me good local information for the stone circles I was soon to commune with.
