Clashcame is a townland name, interpreted by John O'Donovan as Clais Céim, 'trench of the step'. This seems to relate to the name Cuscamecurragh, which on Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) refers to part of the high ridge of the Sheeffry Hills (see Tievummera). Clashcame is situated at the western foot of this ridge. Barrclashcame is the top part of the townland. Previously Clashcame in MV. Walks: for a route along the main E-W ridge of the Sheeffry Hills, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 62-63.   Barrclashcame is the highest mountain in the Sheeffry Hills area and the 61st highest in Ireland. Barrclashcame is the second most westerly summit in the Sheeffry Hills area.

Clashcarne is a massive hill with steep green slopes rising from near sea level at Doo Lough. I reached from the col with Tievummera (see for previous part of east to west traverse) by quite a narrow little ridge and a short climb above steep southern slopes. The top is flat with short grass and there is a small cairn with views back along northern flanks of preceding hills. A short walk to a little upright stone finds the western end of the Sheefrys and perhaps the best views of the whole range - across Doo Lough to Mweelra (see pic). Voices could clearly be heard floating up from cars parked on the road over 700m below but there was no one else up here and you just felt on a different world.You could spend the whole day here just taking in the view stretching from Doo Lough to Finn Lough between the steep slopes of Ben Gorm and Mwreela and across across Killary Harbour to the 12 Bens. To the north and west the ocean is dotted with numerous islands. I dropped down NW to take in the North West Top over some very steep and rocky ground requiring use of hands - just under an hour there and back up. To ascend off the hill drop down south over relentlessly steep ground which is slippery in places. The view down into the valley and across to Ben Creggan helps to ease the strain on the legs as descend heading for one of the two bridges over the Glenummera River - I contoured down east for the second bridge but was able to cross the river easily before this. It is then a walk of just over 3 miles back to the starting point at the forest entrance above Tawnyard Lough. I did not see anyone else on this traverse of the Sheffreys and would thoroughly recommend it as a full day but only when the weather is good.
