As with many names beginning with com, this name originally applied to a deep hollow on the side of the mountain. According to Seán Ó Súilleabháin the peak is also known as An Sagart. A cliff on the north-east side is named Leam a Soggorth, an anglicisation of Ir. Léim an tSagairt, 'leap of the priest' , a name which probably preserves a memory of a tale of a priest escaping from pursuing soldiers in Penal times, much like the Priest's leap between Bonane and Coomhola, near Glengarriff. On the Discovery map no. 78 the Irish name of the summit is An Tráigh [OSI], 'the strand'. Perhaps this is a humorous name for the large stony patch without turf cover near the summit. For further information on the name, see Paul Tempan, Some Notes on the Names of Six Kerry Mountains, JKAHS, ser. 2, vol. v (2005), 5-19.   Coomacarrea is the highest mountain in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area and the 62nd highest in Ireland.

Three ridged, high grassy summit.
Short Summary created by simon3, paddyhillsbagger,  22 Jul 2014
Coomacarrea would normally be climbed as part of the Glenbeigh Horseshoe circuit starting at Meentog and finishing at Drung Hill (or round the other way) taking in 7 600m+ tops as well as a sub 600m if you wanted.There is car parking beside a ruined cottage near the head of Coomasaharn Lake at V636852 A which is at the end of a minor road out of Glengeigh for either route. From the summit of Meentog follow the broad grassy shoulder downhill in a Westerly direction to the gap at the bottom of Coomacarrea. There are some fences and stony paths near here. Continue W up the shoulder where a fence takes a meandering line up to broad unmarked grassy summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/59/comment/4819/
