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 1376th highest place in Ireland.

We climbed Cean Sibeal in mist, from the small beach by the holiday village. Mist level was about the holiday villages gardens! Just made it back to the car before the rain started again. Pretty straight forward route following the track up, marked on the map, though it becomes vague through the last fields before the summit, which in clear weather would not be an issue.

Whilst looking for a pub to dry out in we stumbled upon one serving it's own micro brewery produced cask ale, and quite tasty it turned out to be as well! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1035/comment/4112/
