This top is called Coumfea in some accounts. It can be walked as part of a circuit of the Nire Valley or as I did in 2005 by coming north from Seefin. The summit is adorned with a very small pile of stones. As you walk from it towards Coumfea you circle round a huge, steep sided coum facing just east of north and over 1k wide. The views down from this includes a number of small lakes such as these two. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/102/comment/1793/
