A new public walkway is nearing completion on Carrigfadda. The initial climb is a bit on the steep side, but steps are being put in place to make the walkway more accessible to young and old. It's only a short walk, but the panoramic view of the West Cork coastline -- from the Old Head of Kinsale right around to the Mizen and Beara peninsulas -- is nothing short of spectacular.

One for all the family to enjoy!
