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.

The land south and south-west of this summit above Lough Coumcurrane is quite astonishing for roughness.

Take a look at this section which looks more like goitre than rock.

Towards the bottom right are a few specks of white. These are sheep. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/313/comment/6835/
