Kinbane Head (Ceann ban)

kenbane5_320-2104706 More Images

Kinbane Head is about 3 miles directly west of Ballycastle which can be easily seen in the distance. Although magnificent views of the whole surrounding coastline can be seen from the car park, if possible make the effort to venture out to the point of Kinbane Head in order to experience the thrill of the breeze rushing up from the sea one hundred below, sit there for while, watch the sea birds fly within feet and listen as the waves crash against Carrickamanon Rock standing just on the surface just a few hundred feet away. Grace Staple’s cave is also hereabouts. My parents live nearby and so I visit this place often, and just after Easter you will find a wide variety of flowers that paint the cliff side. There are a few buzzards in this area so keep your eye open especially on the way down to the car park, drive slowly.

History

Like so much else about here Kinbane Castle was built by a MacDonnell in 1547. In 1551 a battle with  English troops  reduced the castle to it’s current state by canon fire but Colla MacDonnell held strong and the attacks defeated, tragically he died here in 1558 and it is believed that his remains rest in a vault at Bonamargy Friary.

Location

Take the B15 coast road to Ballintoy, about 1.5 miles from Ballycastle a sign post directs you to a small road on the right-hand-side, follow this to the car park where you will find toilets and picnic area.

Carrickarede Rope Bridge

More Images

Open for most of the summer season (April to September) the Carrickarede rope bridge is not a trip for the faint hearted with an 80 foot downwards view of sand, sea and surf.

The bridge is slung up during the summer by commercial fishermen getting access to their nets.

Ould Lammas Fair Lyrics

At the Ould Lammas Fair in Ballycastle long ago I met a pretty colleen who set me heart a-glow She was smiling at her daddy buying lambs from Paddy Roe At the Ould Lammas Fair in Ballycastle-O! Sure I seen her home that night When the moon was shining bright

From the ould Lammas Fair in Ballycastle-O!

Chorus At the ould Lammas Fair boys were you ever there Were you ever at the Fair In Ballycastle-O? Did you treat your Mary Ann To some Dulse and Yellow Man

At the ould Lammas Fair in Ballycastle-O!

In Flander’s fields afar while resting from the War We drank Bon Sante to the Flemish lassies O! But the scene that haunts my memory is kissing Mary Ann Her pouting lips all sticky from eating Yellow Man

As we passed the silver Margy and we strolled along the strand From the ould Lammas Fair in Ballycastle-O!

Repeat Chorus

There’s a neat little cabin on the slopes of fair Knocklayde It’s lit by love and sunshine where the heather honey’s made With the bees ever humming and the children’s joyous call Resounds across the valley as the shadows fall

Sure I take my fiddle down and my Mary smiling there Brings back a happy mem’ry of the Lammas Fair

Repeat Chorus
