Struell Wells, (Irish, Toibreacha an tSruthail. Ulster-Scots, Struell Waals.) [1] is a group of four holy wells that are 1.5 miles (2.4kms) east of Downpatrick County, Northern Ireland (grid reference: J5134422). [2] These wells are still used today for those seeking healing. They date back to before Saint Patrick. Struell was visited every Friday before Lammas and Mid-Summer Eve, which is St John's Eve. [3] While the earliest recorded reference to the wells can be found in 1306, no building surviving from that time is older than approximately 1600. The history of pilgrimages to this site is well documented, from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
