Ballinaboola or Baile na Buaile means townland or homestead for cattle fold or summer pasture. One can imagine that this sheltered location on the lower north western reaches of the Ballyhoura mountains would have been very suitable for providing shelter for livestock in times past. This section of forestry is part of a 6000 hectare block that is criss-crossed with multiple tracks and forest roads.

Ballinaboola is located 9km from Charleville & 4km from Ballyhay on the N20 in North Cork.
