Suil an craic has been a flowing journey of evolution. We have spent
time communing with ourselves and this wonderful land we reside in with
its rich tapestry of love, lore, language and ceoil. It has increased
our belief, that community can make a difference. When we unite
together, we become a river of change. We have seen without a doubt the
indigenous people of Ireland still exist. We have heard our goddesses
speak truth of the landscape and we hear the whisper of the wells.
We are Here!
We have realised the substantial growth of our community. This
vision-come-reality is much more than we could have ever imagined. We
feel it is now time to dream deeper and refocus the walk. Reaching for
the stars and higher again.
It is our understanding that this
walk is a pivotal in proving our existence. We wholeheartedly desire to
honour this with the respect of clarity, truth and love.
this in mind we have decided to stop walking to regroup our vision. We
fully intend to begin walking again following the craic to Malin Head.
We will begin dreaming the new evolution of this journey within the
next few weeks. If anyone is called to come vision with us, we would be
glad to include you. Please feel free to get in touch.
In the mean time, we wish this community to continue to interact and use this page as a forum to communicate with each other.

A joyous jam making on the walk by the well as we clean her,Kilmacow well of Co Cork.
some images from our day in kilmacow Co Cork
The well is believed to have being founded by St Machu. Sometime at the beginning of 6th century. It seems like his name is most probably a corruption of St Mo Chutu mac Finaill. A Kerry man by birth, renowned for his good lucks. As a result it is said he was followed by 30 women. Whom he persuaded into the love of God and not him. After a failed attempt at building monastery in Meath. Machu with permission from by the then King of the Deisi. As a result Machu built his most famous monastery. He remained in the Lismore area until he died on the 14th May 637AD. The Feast Day is celebrated on the 15th of May.
Traditionally this well was visited on Good Friday and the practice still continues to this day:
it is the custom on the day of the visit to leave something at the well even a piece of cloth. People generally leave statues there, It was the custom long ago to throw some small coin, such as a sixpence, into the water, but the custom is not carried out largely now. People drink the water as they believe it is to be a cure for many diseases. There is a big tree at the well and it is on this, any piece of cloth, which is left at the well, is hanging.
