This peak is unnamed on OS maps. It lies on the boundary of the townlands of Derrynafulla and Coomarkane. Any information on the correct name of this hill would be welcome. 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.   Derrynafulla SW is the 1004th highest place in Ireland.

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 V88770 55799 A. Follow Beara Way until approx V88357 54770 B 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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/872/comment/19945/
