The Priest’s Leap
BonaneCo. Kerry

Legend has it that a local priest from Bonane had to flee the anti-Catholic militia and ran over the mountains towards the port at Bantry. Cornered at the top of the pass, he took a leap of faith and sailed across to Bantry Bay without a scratch. We wouldn’t recommend trying this yourself.
