Seahan has two megalithic cairns on its summit. Liam Price noted that Seahan appears on the Down Survey maps as Seavick na bantree and rightly interpreted this as Ir. Suidhe Mhic na Baintrighe, 'seat of the widow's son'. However, he believed that the story behind the name would never be understood: This curious name must have some reference to old traditions about the ancient burial cairns which crown the top of this mountain. All such traditions about this place have long ago disappeared (The Antiquities and Place Names of South County Dublin, Dublin Historical Record, vol. ii, no. 4, 121-33). While the precise story may never be recovered, it should be noted that Mac na Baintrí, the widow's son, is a common figure in Irish folktales whose characteristics are eternal persistence and ingenuity in the face of adversity.   Seahan is the 205th highest summit in Ireland. Seahan is the third highest point in county Dublin.

padodes on Seahan, 2010
by padodes  9 Mar 2010
The OS sheet only indicates a cairn and megalithic tomb on top of Seahan, but there is also a wedge tomb only a stone’s throw just west of these two. To my mind, it’s the most photogenic of all three, despite the few shattered slabs that remain. It has had perhaps four thousand years of history wash over it and still resists. It has seen off the heroic huntsmen of the Fianna who allegedly roamed these hills and will see off too the mud-bespattered bikers who now rake up the earth around it. If you are looking for a little taste of timelessness, why not nestle down in the tomb and think yourself back into the mysterious world of the Neolithic chieftain who was once laid in it? Maybe the whisper you hear will not only be the rustle of the wind in the heather… Well, it’s just a suggestion.

Normally such tombs were not built above 300m, but this one lies at twice that height. Considering the many other tombs that bedeck all of these hills, one might sometimes feel like being in a necropolis here. In the photo, you can see Seefingan on the left, with its cairn, and Seefin on the right, with its impressive passage grave. Those living in the plains below could never have felt that their dead were far away.

In the photo you can also make out in the distance the snowy top of Mullaghcleevaun, with its north-facing corrie. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/200/comment/4494/
