Access Issue to Beenbo (Dingle Peninsula)
Lads,
Just to let ye know of an access problem on the approach to Beenbo/Slievegower/Slievenalecka from Baile Dubh/Ballyduff graveyard near Cloghane. Followed Adrian Hendroff's excellent route last Saturday. After following the road uphill from the graveyard and 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.
One can surmise that the increased popularity of this walk might be annoying the relevant landowner, and I can feel some sympathy with this. Nonetheless, it is a great pity to see such a sign especially in in light of the great efforts the Cloghane/Brandon community have made to draw walkers to the area. Perhaps some efforts could be made on a local level to resolve this issue.
