The Priest's Leap, Co. Cork

The Priest's Leap, Co. Cork
Taken from the pass known as the Priest's Leap (Léim an tSagairt), looking south towards Bantry Bay. Behind me is the Cork/Kerry border. The cross provides a visual anchor and the scattered cloud and isolated light in the valley below complete the image. Local legend has it that a priest being pursued by soldiers made a miraculous leap from near here and landed a mile or two from Bantry - quite a distance!
