GLENBEIGH ROAD IN DUBLIN - CONNECTING OLD CABRA ROAD TO ST DAVID'S TERRACE
I assume that this is named after the Village and Parish in County Kerry.
The Irish name Gleann Beithe is from gleann "glen, valley" and Beithe, related to the Behy River (Irish An Bheithe) and the birch tree (beith). The anglicisation "Glanbehy" is the official spelling for the civil parish in County Kerry whereas Glenbeigh is the spelling for the village where the N70 road meets the Behy River and the road in the north Circular Area of Dublin.
A number of Fianna legends centre around Glenbeigh. These legends suggest that Diarmuid and Grainne spent some days hiding in a cave in the valley of the Behy. Nearby Rossbeigh is known for being the place where Oisin and Niamh took to the sea on their white horse to live in Tír na nÓg (the land of youth).
