The Gael Saoire Ballyferriter
Leaving Ballyferriter and passing through the Gaeltacht heartlands of An Mhuiríoch (Murreigh) and An Fheothanaigh (Feothanach) the road winds towards Cuas an Bhodaigh (Brandon Creek) from where Saint Brendan the Navigator and his monks set sail on their voyage of discovery to the new world. Local Corca Dhuibhne people believe that Brendan discovered America, long, long before Columbus. From here a section of ‘The Dingle Way’ walks cut across Brandon Head to link up with Leith Triúch (Cloghane-Brandon) on the far side of the mountain.
