Two Men Missing on Sheep's Head
The Irish Independent reports this morning: A land and sea search is underway in Co Cork for two Dutch men who disappeared after going out walking on Saturday. The two men, aged 31 and 33, who are regular visitors to the area and know it well, have not been seen since Saturday afternoon. They arrived in Ireland last Wednesday and were staying in a holiday home that belongs to the mother of one of the men.
They told her they would go walking along Sheepís Head at lunchtime but never returned.
The alarm was raised at 11.30pm last night by a neighbour when concerns for the menís safety grew. It is feared that the men may have been walking near the coast when high winds were blowing high waves onto the rocks near the lighthouse.
The Shannon rescue helicopter searched both sides of the peninsula in the early hours of this morning using searchlights. It re-fuelled in Castletownbere this morning before resuming the search. The Castletownbere and Goleen coastguards also launched a coastal search this morning Gardai say one of the menís mobile phones is ringing but not being answered, and the manís wallets are at the holiday home and a car they were using is parked outside.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...
