Coastal Hills: 35 added for Kerry
Context of comment:MountainViews has been describing "Coastal Hills" for the island of Ireland. They are places which typically overlook the sea and may form part of coastal walks. They are defined as being within 1000m of the sea, of at least 50m height and prominence at least 20m. We have added 35 of these Coastal Hills in Kerry.

Places you may never have heard of such as Kilfenora Hill, 56m overlooking Tralee Bay, Or An Tuairín / Tooreen west of Waterville and overlooking the Skelligs.

For another example to the south of Rossbeigh Beach we had an existing summit defined in Curra Hill, 275m included because it has a prominence of 170m meeting the requirement to be a Binnion. There are however a series of four smaller hills to the west of this such as Knockatinna https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5124/

We invite people to investigate these places respecting as always that many lower hills are on private land requiring permission for access. Judging by previously added coastal summits there will be a mix, varying in interest and accessibility. Do the community a service by describing for example access, parking and what can be found at the place. Correct the position using the "Improve Grid Ref." feature.

MV acknowledges the voluntary work of Brendan O'Reilly who did the time consuming work of locating this list.

Inevitably with this much detail there will be errors. If you find one please report it using the "Propose Places Database Change" feature.
