Sybil Point and Sybil Head are said to be named after Sybil Lynch, and near Doon Point a stump of masonry is all that remains of Sybil Castle, also known as Ferriter's Castle. In fact, they were named earlier than her time but the story is worth recording. The Ferriters – originally le Furetur – were a Norman family who settled here in the 13th Century. Sybil Lynch of Galway eloped with one of the Ferriters and was pursued by her father. She hid in a cave while her father laid seige to the castle, but when the fight was over it was found that the sea had swept through the cave and washed her away (Steve MacDonogh - The Dingle Peninsula: History, Folklore, Archaeology). A full account of the story is given by Captain Crane in the Kerry Archaeological Magazine, vol. i, no. 3 (1909), 143-47.   Ceann Sibéal is the 1375th highest summit in Ireland.

Parked the car on the grass verge at Q325 058 C and walked up the track. Depending on the 4x4ness of your vehicle, there is room to park at the end of this track. We passed through the gate and followed the tractor trail upwards. Halfway up the track ends and there is a ditch where you can easily pass under the fence. The field on the right surrounded by an electric fence had cows in it. Big cows. We hopped the barbed wire fence on the left with the sheep in it. Good choice as a bit further up we noticed through the mist an even bigger, meaner looking cow lacking in the udder department. There is a large ruined building at the top, and a plaque on the summit in memory of Michael (Mick) Christian. The cliffs here are precipitous, much more so than at Ballydavid Head. As far as we could tell in the mist. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1035/comment/3882/
