The association with Fionn Mac Cumhaill is reinforced by the fact that Seefin Mountain overlooks a valley named after his son: Glenosheen (Ir. Gleann Oisín, 'valley of Oisín').   Seefin Mountain W Top is the highest mountain in the Ballyhoura Mountains area and the 476th highest in Ireland.

Walked to the top of Seefin this morning. The weather was good despite a heavy rain and hail shower at the summit.
I parked at the Greenwood car park and for the most part I followed a route described by Geoff Hunt in his book "Limerick Nature Walks".
The walk was a fairly handy one except for the final 200m to the summit over boggy ground. Decent view from the trig point on the top. A good walk if time is limited. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/397/comment/3008/
