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.

After coming off Ben Gorm well soaked, I drove the few minutes to the base of this hill. The obvious layby had a sign saying parking for fishermen only, so I parked on the beach through a gap in the wall. Weather was still heavy rain and high wind, feet still soaked.
I walked along the private road and past the 'hotel'. No idea if that was allowed or not, but very handy and with the rivers in spate due to the rain seemed the safest option. I then worked up the ridge. Broad and pleasant (ignoring the wind and rain). Greeted on the summit plateau by 50mph wind driven rain and had trouble walking. Used the GPS to zoom in on the summit. (1 hour 5min up) Found a small cairn at L84976 69514 C. Photo shows my backpack with the summit cairn. What isn't obvious is that my pole is jammed in the cairn and the 'sac is looped over the pole. Otherwise it would have blown away! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/60/comment/1244/
