Also known as Com Caillí [T6000], 'hollow of the hag'. As with other mountain names beginning with coom-, this name has been transferred from a nearby corrie to the summit itself. It is not hard to guess which is the corrie in question as the presence of nearby Lough Coomcallee gives it away. Another Coomcallee is a townland on the north side of Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, though it is now better known by the English translation: The Hag’s Glen.   An Ghuala Ghorm is the 203rd highest place in Ireland.

Let there be autumnal light
by Colin Murphy  27 Nov 2012
Descending in beautiful autumnal light as evening came on, I was lucky to snap this image of the setting sun from the col between Coomcalle and Beann ná Stiocairí, with Lough Isknagahiny in the distance. Ironically, the previous time I'd been in this neighbourhood at the height of summer, I could barely see the hand in front of my face for the mist, I was soaked through and to top it all I fell into a lake! Such are the vagaries of Ireland's climate. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/192/comment/14888/
