Myself & my kids were jumping off the pier at Knockadoon at high tide 7pm earlier. Tiz great for the soul. We went to Ballycroneen beach yesterday at 1:30 for low tide. It’s a little gem of a beach for East Cork. Has to be low tide though. Will head west for the weekend for the Caribbean effect 🏊‍♂️ ☀️
Ballycroneen was our beach of choice when I was a kid. Its a lovely spot. Need to head down there again pronto

And, at low tide you can walk/paddle across to Ringabella from the sand trombolo at Fountainstown beach west. Less than knee deep.

Looked across from both sides a few times but never risked walking it. Interesting to hear it's only knee deep at low tide. Always imagined that there was a central piece that was always too deep to wade. God be good to the poor fellah who drowned trying to swim back from Sean na mBáds.

I vaguely remember that incident. I walked across a few weeks ago and if I was wearing wellies the water in the middle would have been a few inches from the top of the wellies. Back in the day, fadó fadó, I was at a beach party there that went on until morning and we were swimming on our backs, back and forth, having races. More innocent times and still great craic.

If the tide is going in or out there’s a fairly wild current over that side of the beach.
