Ballydehob, meaning “mouth of the two river fords”, is a village in West Cork, which serves as the gateway to the Mizen Peninsula.
On the approach to the village, the beautiful twelve arch viaduct can be seen. This was used by West Cork Rail until the mid-20th century.
Ballydehob plays host to a number of festivals, including the Ballydehob Jazz Festival, Ballydehob Country Music Festival, and the West Cork Yoga Festival.
In the village, there is a monument to Danno Mahony, known as ‘The Irish Whip’.
On 30 June 1935, he won the NWA World title in Boston. Danno was killed in a car accident at the age of 37, on 4 November 1950.
