Words From Wells

Welcome to Words from Wells! A blog set up to give you a glimpse into Wells and how we started, the people who made it what it is today and the people who are working to make it last for generations to come! This blog is not just about history but about the real lives of people from Ireland and beyond, our heritage, their pets, hobbies, talents and successes and even some of their secrets!
