Very interested in bsheils' comment on an Irish name for this mountain. I see that an anglicised form of this name, Seehaunnamnafinna, appears on the 6" OS map, not on the summit, but on the northern slopes of this peak. It is located at approx. W698969 C, about 800m to the north of the summit. It is printed in a font which indicates an antiquity. There appears to be a discrepancy between this information and the marking of a cairn at the summit on the modern Discovery map as an archaeological feature. Can anyone give the true location of this cairn (assuming there is only cairn in question)? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/794/comment/14820/
