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 summit in Ireland.

There are several interesting ascent options. A purist might ascend via Lough Coomcallee (a gem of a coum) on the east, while the normal ascent from Maughernane (between Lough Iskanamacteery and Cloonaghlin Lough) in the north follows a distinctive curving ridge, also providing spectacular views, to point 642. Rock enthusiasts might like to investigate a rocky spur that abuts the curving ridge - I have no idea how difficult this would be. It starts at V619706 C.
On top of that, the mountain can be approached along the tortured Iveragh ridge running SSW to NE at this point, or by a simple stroll from Tooreens in the south west. It is wonderfully situated for views, though the flattish summit detracts somewhat. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/192/comment/1747/
