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 summit in Ireland.

Here's a picture of Sybil Head from the south, near Clogher Head. The Three Sisters dominate the skyline to the right. Clogher Head, incidentally, has a volcanic origin. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1035/comment/4321/
