The association with Fionn Mac Cumhaill is reinforced by the fact that Seefin Mountain overlooks a valley named after his son: Glenosheen (Ir. Gleann Oisín, 'valley of Oisín').   Seefin Mountain W Top is the highest mountain in the Ballyhoura Mountains area and the 477th highest in Ireland.

jackill on Seefin Mountain W Top, 2005
by jackill  25 Apr 2005
A wet day to start (it eventually cleared up) but, having finally located a copy of Map 73 a couple of weeks ago, I struck out for the Ballyhouras. I started at the track R 643 155 B . With some amusement I noted the sign that described this track a "Scenic Mountain Drive" , on a tractor or a 4X4 maybe but certainly not in a car if you want your sump and exhaust still attached at the end of it.I followed the track all the way to the second tractor park at R640 183 C and then across the bog on a very eroded track to Seefin. Then it was down the front of Seefin and on to Long Mountain. I made the mistake of cutting back across the bog to rejoin the track I'd walked up on - I have to agree with s mc auliffe and say its better to stick to the tracks , badly eroded though they are, if you don't enjoy falling into hidden holes all day. The photo is taken from Seefin looking at Long mountain on the right with Ballyorgan village below and Temple Hill of the Galtys in the distance nearly totally obscured by the haze. 9 kms and 2 .5 hours.
