You come to Waterfall village after 2.5 miles.  There isn’t much to this, just a few houses.

At the far side (Bandon side) of Waterfall village, there is a pub called O’Shea's. Turn right at the pub.

You go under an old railway bridge. After another 250 yards approximately turn right.

After about 250 yards you will come to Ballinora village.

There is a housing estate across from the GAA pitch and Church. The lane for the GAA pitch is on your left before you come to the school and church. It is behind the school and church. Follow the lane down around the back of the pitch and the hall is in front of you.

Go on to the new road towards Cork.

Take the second exit.

Turn right at the round about at the top of the slip road, cross over the new road and go straight through the next roundabout. You will come to a T-Junction at the Curraheen road. Turn left.
