Having been unable to defend Dunboy Castle against the English cannons, it was from Derrynafulla (Ir. Doire na Fola, 'oak-grove of the blood') that Donal Cam O'Sullivan Beare regrouped his forces and followers on December 31st 1602 before their arduous and perilous march northwards to meet the O'Rourkes in Leitrim.

West Cork's Finest!
by ciarraioch 12 Jun 2018
A certain pot-stirring Cork-domiciled Killorglin man has been held responsible for the saying 'West Cork, that part of Kerry that Kerry rejected!'
Well even if it were true, the Kingdom definitely came out the worst in this case!
Lovely, lovely little hill at the end of a charming valley. Glengarriff's fractal landscape throws up new surprises.
Park the car at layby after the bridge R'roe Br (V88770 55799). Follow Beara Way until approx A (V88357 54770) and then strike more or less directly for the summit.
Outstanding views west towards Sugarloaf and east over Glengarriff. We returned by the same route. Lovely café in Coomarkane, way off the beaten track, if you go left after the bridge on your return. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/872/comment/19945/

pdtempan on Derrynafulla SW
by pdtempan 22 Mar 2009
In this panorama the peaks in the distance are Sugarloaf Mountain (right) and Gowlbeg Mountain (centre). The hill in question is seen directly in front of Sugarloaf and Shrone Hill is to the left. Derrynafulla is the name of a townland at the foot of these last two peaks. Having been unable to defend Dunboy Castle against the English cannons, it was here that Donal Cam O'Sullivan Bere regrouped his forces and followers on December 31st 1602 before their arduous and perilous march northwards to meet the O'Rourkes in Leitrim.

Attempt from Derryconnery
by thomas_g 15 Dec 2014
I attempted to find a route up through the trees from Derryconnery, following the old Beara Way past where it turned to the south, I took the next right turn into a boggy valley by a stream. I attempted and failed to find a reasonable route through the trees on to Derrynafulla.
Next time, I'll either ignore this turning and walk to the end of the valley and climb onto the ridge where the Beara way now runs or approach from the Coomarkane valley to the north.
Moral of the story, don't go that way. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/872/comment/17759/
