Named from nearby coum, where the River Inny rises. The crags at the back of Lough Reagh, dubbed the 'Aiguilles', are remarkably complex and offer many possibilities for climbing.   Coomura Mountain is the 168th highest place in Ireland.

Short Summary created by Peter Walker  22 Nov 2018
Teetering on the northern edge of the extensive plateau extending north from Knocknagantee in the Dunkerrons, Coomura Mountain presents very differing forms of complexity depending on viewpoint. Its southern frontage is very much knolly and mostly grassy (before collapsing into the twisted wonderland around Lough Reagh), while to the north and east lies a plunging abyss of folds, contortions and benches.

The grassy summit would generally be visited as part of a longer excursion taking in a selection of summits around the skyline of Lough Cloon. For a direct approach start at the north end of that Lough (V708789 A) following a track along the western shore before thrashing a way south-west up to the col at the foot of the north ridge, which is followed to the grassy summit. More entertaining and exciting routes can be made by the experienced through the complex and craggy area around Lough Reagh: an area not for the novice or for bad conditions.

Longer approaches for a multi-summit day can be made from the west at (V631739 B) taking in Knockmoyle and Knocknagantee, or from the south at (V669712 C) or (V675706 D) taking in both those summits plus Coomnacronia.

The views from Coomura encompass the vast hollow of the River Inny to the north-west and the long line of summits along the Iveragh Spine to the south. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/162/comment/4922/
