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.

A good view of the deep corrie lake high on the south side of Coomcallee gouged out of the mountain by small mountain glaciers during the Ice Age. This photograph was taken from the Beara. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/192/comment/2346/
