Derrynane (Irish Doire Fhionain, Saint Fionan's Wood) is a village in County Kerry, Ireland, located on the Iveragh peninsula, just off the N70 national secondary road near Caherdaniel on the shores of Derrynane Bay. Sinéad Scully loves spending her summers in Derrynane. She won the belle of Derrynane Summer 2016 and will represent them in the Rose of Tralee in 2017. Niamh hasn't been there in a while :(
Saint Fionan founded a monastery in the area in the 6th century.
