Leap

Leap is a village in south west Cork. It is situated at the north end of Glandore Harbour, several miles inland from the seacoast. Leap is the second biggest village in Cork after Kiskeam as it has the most acres in townlands. Its full Irish name means "O'Donovan's Leap" and is derived from the story of a chieftain called O'Donovan, who was pursued by English soldiers, but escaped them by jumping across a ravine at the bottom of the village. Leap is located on the N71 national secondary road which runs through West cork from Cork city (one hour drive away). It is in the parish of Kilmacabea which also includes Glandore village. Local amenities include three bars, two of which serve food and one of which is a music venue. There is also a furniture and hardware store, a shop/filling station and a hairdressers, as well as two take aways and a GAA pitch.
