THE WELL OF SEGAIS
In the legends of old Ireland the Well of Segais is
very famous. It was the source of the Salmons of
Knowledge who spread poetic and mythic inspiration
among the Celtic people.
Nechtain was guardian of the well. His wife Boand
ultimately broke the bounds of the well and released
the enchanted salmons into the River Boyne.
