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.

Soft Top Gruesome Sides

Descending westwards from Coomnahorna one is presented with the dark eastern face of Coomcallee. Perched on the edge of the coll is tiny Lough Coomeenatierna, ready to spill its insides over the cliff when the rains come. Once you go around that pond, it's straight up Coomcallee which turns out to be a big broth of a grassy boy. It's a real counterpoint to the gruesome flanks you have just witnessed. Coomcallee, whether you have come up the ramp from Cloonaghlin, or the long way round from An Bhinn Lair over Coomathcun or round by Coomnahorna, is the beginning of great spectacles, on both sides, as the fat ridge gradually thins en route to Glanbeg Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/192/comment/16036/
