Overlooks Ballaghisheen (Ir. Bealach Oisín, 'pass of Oisín' from the north. A ridge to the north connects with Meenteog on the Glenbeigh Horseshoe. There are several names mentioned by Ó Cíobháin with the element collach, lit. 'a boar', but referring to boulders. This may be the origin of Colly, but there are other possibilities.   Colly is the 145th highest place in Ireland.

This is a great quick summit- follow the farm track from the end of the road at Coomnaspeara. I met 2 farmers (one on the way up and the other on the descent. There are 2 farmhouses at the end of the road and both were happy to let me use their path.) Park though about 300m back along the road - room for 2-3 cars. You might as well do Meenteog SE Top (see my comments on that peak). The view from the top is amazing a full 360 degrees of the Iveagh pennisula....I have posted no photos as you need to see yourself! One oddity - as you approach on the road in you think that there are 2 peaks. I fact I was checking the map, logging onto to mountainviews and even thinking of emailing Simon Stewart. Had I found a "lost VL?!". As you see from the photos it looks like an Bheann Bheag is nearly as high as Colly itself. It is however an illusion as one sees on ascending the summit of Colly. On the drive back to Cork, hidden ridge between both is clearly visible on the south face. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/140/comment/18847/
