Old Head of Kinsale revisited
cork | rights, freedoms and repression | news report Monday July 26, 2004 14:09 by Red Hugh O'Donnell - Free the Old Head of Kinsale
Exclusive Golf Links still denying access to ancient right of way
Protesters from the Free the Old Head of Kinsale Campaign paid a surprise visit to the West Cork headland yesterday (Sunday) to renew their demand for the right of public access to this historic place of beauty.
For several years the owners of an exclusive Golf Course, built at the Old Head of Kinsale despite its historic and tourist importance, have denied the public the right to walk on the headland. For generations - centuries even - local people and visitors have enjoyed the breath-taking scenery of the Old Head of Kinsale.

Any pics or was it balaclavas at dawn?
I am glad to hear there is still life in this campaign. Something like this is always good news!
The denial of access to walk the land is shamefull, well done we need to fight the property barrons and keep the landscape accessable. It is our right as humans to traverse the earth.
Elderly relations (80 years) going there since they were children, were very distressed when they were told they could not get in. Is this ban on access now permanent, or is there still a way for the County Council to enforce its own planning conditions?
I'm from Italy and I've been for the first time in the Old Head two years ago. The place is magic, for me more of the cliffs of Moher, but that golf club was very sad :(
in september I will return in the wonderful ireland, my travel will start just from the old head: it's the first place!
so come on "Free the Old Head Campaign" I trust in you!!!
thanks a lot!
