I parked in the layby mentioned by oldsoldier and made use of the track noted in his comment to get up onto the mountain. It takes little more than an hour to reach the summit, and on a clear day I can think of few other summits that reward so much for so little effort! The 360 degree views are fantastic, with the sea to the south, the Knockmealdowns and Galtees off to the distance in the west, and the main plateau of the Comeraghs to the north. Add to this the Cutteen South corrie at your feet, and you have a superb mix of panoramas.
I then made the short trip over to Farbreaga before descending to the west of the forest, where I spotted a fawn making a run for it on the Treenearla Commons. First deer I've seen outside Wicklow! The whole walk takes less than two hours. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/249/comment/4369/

The summit cairn of Farbreaga (point 593mtrs on OS maps)looking south over Dungarvan bay.
The old sheep wire fence on the right has seen better days - it certainly wouldn't present any obstacle to a semi-determined sheep.Directly in front of where the fence disappears from view over the side of the mountain you can see Crohaun hill with a TV mast on its western flank. For some reason the Comeraghs/Monavullaghs seem to be plagued with both redundant and active transmitters - wouldn't it be great if those who put them up came back and took them down when they are no longer in use?
To the left of the photo is Glendallgan hill rising over the Dallgan river
as its heads for the sea at Ballyvoyle head in Clonea Bay. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/249/comment/1340/

Coming down from Seefin pause for a while at the standing stone and ringfort under Coumaraglin mountain (ahead to the left of picture)
This area of the Monavullaghs around the Araglin river has many stone circles, standing stones and cairns.On a clear November evening after a days walking could there be any better place to take shelter than inside the forts walls for a few minutes rest?

The descent from Seefin was quite steep, I was glad to have the wind in my face at this time as it helped keep me upright. The standing stone is unmissable and impressive, signalling a handy enough ascent to Coumaraglin, where you are greeted by a slapdash and ugly construction supporting several antennae. That didn't stop us sheltering from the wind for a few moments rest behind it, aesthetics overruled by pragmatism :-) Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/249/comment/1794/
