Saint John the Baptist Holy Well, Tobar Eoin, Newhall
This holy well is located on the west bank of the narrow strip of water that connects Ballybeg Lake with Killone Lake. The well lies about 100 metres north east of the Augustinian convent.

Just behind the holy well is a statue of Saint John, which was damaged in the past by a falling tree. On the same side is a near full-size representation of the crucifixion.
