...the church of St. Davin, a saint of whom there is still a vivid tradition, though I do not find his name in the calendar...(367)About on eight mile to the west there is a holy well still called St. Davin’s well but not now resorted to for the cure of any disease; but about 22 years since a ‘pattern’ was held at it annually, on the first of August, which is believed to be St. Davin’s day.
