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 478th highest in Ireland.

As I don't live very far away from the Ballyhoura mountains I descided that I should resist the Galtees and the lure of Kerry and go for a walk on them. The day was lovely, sunny and calm, so I set off from the car park about a mile west of Ardpatrick. I did a short horseshoe walk over Seefin and back to the car. I really didn't enjoy it a whole lot as the hills are covered in long heather which hides ruts and holes that make for nasty walking conditions. The views are pleasant but if you want to walk there I would suggest that you stick to the many forrestry paths that are to be found. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/397/comment/998/
