Wonderful in all but name
by Colin Murphy  19 Nov 2012
Followed skyehigh's directions for ascending Coomcallee from the SW, then headed 1km NE across mostly grassy terrain which was pretty easy going, before swinging west just past the small but beautiful Lough Coomeenatierna. Another 800m of steep climbing over mostly rocky terrain brought me to the summit, which offers spectacular views of the entire Dunkerron range and across the bay to the Cahas towards the south. The mountain is quite spectacular viewed across the valley from Coomcallee and is definitely worth the effort. The top doesn't even merit a name on the OSI map, which seems ridiculous given its prominence and impressive aspect. What exactly is OSI's criteria for naming mountains, one wonders?
