Located near Ballymacoda in East Cork, this one is easy to access from the east via Youghal and from the west via Castlemartyr and Ladysbridge...

The course takes in a loop to the north-west of the GAA grounds and like the surrounding countryside is pretty flat. 

Looking at the photos of the long straight sections and the Ordnance Survey map, I think this is a very fast 4 mile course.
