Maumfin is properly the name of a townland on the slopes of this hill. Tievegarriff is another townland which extends to the summit and whose name may be connected with this hill.   Maumfin is the third highest hill in the West Connemara area and the 1441th highest in Ireland.

Cattle might be a problem
by eamonoc  21 Apr 2017
On 20/4/2017, at 07.4am drove to L 65405 59318 A, at area noted as Tievegariff on OS sheet 37. Parked opposite old abandoned cottage, went through gate and onto a well made farm tack uphill to two old stone sheds and a cattle feeder. Much evidence here of cattle traffic, although there were none about this early. The ground was deeply rutted but reasonably dry, went behind shed to the right towards a low fence crossed this and headed uphill to the big cairn as mentioned by markwallace, there was another little rocky knoll about 80mts due west which I thought was higher than area where the Cairn stands.
