    Development in Dublin could destroy historic well

    The construction of the cross- city Luas line will destroy a holy well associated with St Patrick, Jonathan Swift and the introduction of frogs to Ireland, a historian has claimed.Gary Branigan, author of Ancient & Holy Wells of Dublin, said the line would pass over St Patrick’s Well as it makes its way past Trinity College. The underground well would be destroyed in the process, he said.The Railway Procurement Agency said it was aware of the well, which is a recorded monument, but said it would not be affected by the Luas works.
