Beenbo Hill Gob an Iolair A name in Irish
(Ir. Gob an Iolair [OSI], 'beak of the eagle') Kerry County, in Carn List, Cross-bedded sandstone Bedrock

Longitude: -10.12825, Latitude: 52.200166 , Easting: 54541, Northing: 107457 Prominence: 48.13m,  Isolation: 0.6km

Bedrock type: Cross-bedded sandstone, (Coumeenoole Sandstone Formation)

Since Beenbo is clearly a separate name (probably from Ir. Binn Bó, 'peak of the cow'), it seems likely that it is the true name of the summit, while Gob an Iolair applies originally to the sharp point just N of the summit.   Gob an Iolair is the 638th highest place in Ireland.

Potential Access Issue
by ciarraioch  16 May 2012
Potential access problem on the approach from Baile Dubh/Ballyduff graveyard near Cloghane. On 12 May 2012, followed Adrian Hendroff's route as per his excellent 'The Dingle, Iveragh & Beara Peninsulas'. This would appear to be the same access route as outlined in the Short Summary created by jackill above. Anyway, after following the road uphill from the graveyard, taking the right fork, and going through the rusty gate per instructions, we came across the following sign on the second gate further in, saying 'Private Property - No Walkers'. It was a temporary affair, just a printed A4 sheet in a plastic pocket. Being reluctant to turn back at this stage, we scaled a fence into the adjoining field and continued from there. For all we knew, this could also have been owned by the individual who put up the sign. Further up the mountain, we met a sheep farmer who was quite friendly, but neither we nor he mentioned the sign.
Lovely little mountain with a nice sharp ridge to a flat summit, great views across to Mount Brandon and its paternoster lakes and across to Loop Head in County Clare. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/535/comment/6801/
