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 62nd highest in Ireland. Barrclashcame is the second most westerly summit in the Sheeffry Hills area.

Fair dinkum sport!

I took my Aussie sister hillwalking at her request during July's heatwave. At least she was familiar with the weather. She is a fanatical cyclist and has undertaken 3000km journeys the length and breadth of Europe and Australia. Yet she was overawed by the magnificence of this area and commented that it was hard to think of anything that matched its beauty in all of her travels. On a day such as the one we enjoyed, it is hard to argue. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/60/comment/15047/
