Tough slog
by Kennyj  18 Apr 2015
Made my first solo run in the Monvullagh/Comeragh mountains today,parked at the forest entrance at S264025 C crossed the road at the culvert that crosses the small stream running along the roadway and headed north crossing another small stream before heading northeast up onto Coumaraglin mountain,not much in the way of tracks up here but finally came to a monstrosity of scaffolding and satellite dishes with the cairn on Farbreaga to the right.From here I picked up a fence heading down into the Barnanmaddra gap where there is a white standing stone.From here it's a very steep climb up on to Seefin with unbelievable winds almost making me turn back, finally came to the hut and had lunch with two fellow walkers up there.Made my way back to the scaffolding with the dishes and took a better track down heading southwest with Crohaun ahead down to the road with the final stretch back to the car.Time taken 3 hrs 52 mins,distance 15.8 km,ascent 1140 m,descent 1111m.

The summit trig pillar has fallen on hard times. Fortunately the mist restricts our view of the concrete monstrosity, mentioned by Jackill, in the background.

The vehicle to the left of the monstrosity is a 4WD. Usually I can't say I want these things on mountains (or in cities). However I would make an exception for this occasion where it was bringing organisers and supplies for participants on the annual Comeragh Challenge.

This illustrates that it it possible to drive to the summit, assuming you have the key for the gate. You certainly won't do it in an ordinary car however. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/90/comment/1798/

The summit of Seefin is marked by two cairns and a concrete hut which
warns of " Microwave radiation" from TV broadcasts (Oh my poor head !!!)
and promises we'll be the first to fry - wouldn't it be great if the people who erected it took down all this tv rubbish on the Comeraghs/Monavullaghs as most of it seems well past being used
Go on the Deise!!!!! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/90/comment/1342/

Coming south from Seefin this megalithic cairn at around 670m marks the start of a sharp descent along the ragged fence to Barnamaddra Gap and standing stone.

On the occasion that I did it, the wind was extraordinary. It hadn't been very noticeable at all on Seefin or points north of there, but here it must have been near to the tumbling point.

Safely returned I sought an explanation from maps. The wind was from the SW and the slope stretching from Seefin to Coumaraglin and Farbreaga is a hugh natural ampitheatre. The wind wasn't that strong either on the plateau top or at road level but entering this mostly treeless valley is scooped and concentrated on the ridge near the cairn. Since the SW is the commonest direction for wind, this must happen fairly often, so I would be interested if anyone else has encountered such a phenemenon.

I parked at the start of the forest track at S25466 04916 D and followed it up to the summit. Navigation is straightforward, even though my 1993 preliminary edition Sheet 75 wasn't quite right about the tracks or the current extent of the plantation. The concrete hut is still there at the summit, unfortunately. There are, however, some lovely views north towards Fauscoum, west over to the Knockmealdowns, and south to Croahan. It takes about 90 minutes to reach the top from the parking space, so Seefin makes an easy bagging target. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/90/comment/2987/
