The laziest man in Ireland?
by thomas_g  6 Apr 2012
One wonders as you traverse the country what made Fionn mac Cumhaill so tired that he was constantly sitting down. Fionn seems to have travelled the country trying to find high points on which to park his posterior. Given the choice between Musheramore and Seefin, there doesn't appear to be any reason for Fionn to sit at the top of Seefin other than pure laziness.
The access restriction signs appear to have disappeared from the private road, but I'd still prefer the walk up the line of the fence (there has to be some challenge).
This appears to be a popular place for turf , though I suspect the days of turf harvesting in Ireland are numbered with the bog ecosystem disappearing fast around the country. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/483/comment/6755/
