Unfortunately, there is no evidence that Saint Nectan ever had a hermitage here, but it is a good story. Sadly, Saint Nectan lost his head when he confronted the two robbers who had stolen his cows. The story goes that after the robbers had separated Saint Nectan from his head, Nectan got up, picked up his head walked back to his well where he promptly collapsed and died. One robber lost his mind when he witnessed this, the other buried Nectan, from then on in, miracles occurred at the sight of Nectan's grave.
