Also known as An Ghuala Ghorm [TH], 'the blue shoulder'. As with other mountain names beginning with coom-, this name has been transferred from a nearby corrie to the summit itself. It is not hard to guess which is the corrie in question as the presence of nearby Lough Coomcallee gives it away. Another Coomcallee is a townland on the north side of Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, though it is now better known by the English translation: The Hag’s Glen.
Coomcallee is the 204th highest place in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/192/?PHPSESSID=p81gpcdqmi3rek9ll1g58sqq31
