Outside the village of Doochary on the back road to Letterkenny is Tobar Shorcha,. The water there is reputed to cure skin conditions and people can make a pilgramage there to either seek a cure for themselves or for a friend or family member. Should they seek the cure for someone other than themselves, they bring a piece of clothing or some other item belonging to the person for whom they are seeking a cure.
The statue at the well is of Kraljica Mira (Our Lady, Queen of Peace) and on the base reads "Kraljica Mira 24.VI.1981 Medjugorje" The date, 24th of June 1981, refers to the date that six young people in the village of Medjugorje in the south west region of Bosnia and Herzegovi saw an apparition of Our Lady at about six pm on that day. The names of these young people are Ivan Dragicevic, Mirjana Dragicevic, Ivan Ivankovic, Ivanka Ivankovic, Vicka Ivankovic, and Milka Pavlovic.
