Previously known as Coomcathcun on MV, the name Com Cait Con, which applies properly to the coom to the N of this peak, is understood locally as the 'hollow of the cat and the greyhound'. Thanks to An Brainse Logainmneacha for providing this information. The anglicised form Coomeathcun on the OSI map is a mis-spelling   Slievenashaska is the 338th highest place in Ireland.

On the summit of Coomcathcun, in snow and misty conditions that are ideal for ML style micro-navigation drills. View from the summit on this particular day were virtually non-existent except for a brief hopeful interlude when a patch of blue sky was seen.
