The Slea Head stage has An Fear Marbh, or the sleeping giant – Kenya has Sleeping Warrior.
The West Kerry version gets its name as the rocky island off the coast of Ireland’s most westerly rally stage resembles a dead or sleeping man.
The Kenyan version has a similar story.
A stage on last weekend’s Safari Rally was run in the shadow of a hill that resembles a sleeping Maasai warrior.
