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.

What a wonderful day out, even in the mist!! The drive through the glenmore valley alone is worth the trip.
This hike brought back why we all head out with the right gear - a fine, dry December day (30/12/16) with no rain forecast and 12 degrees became dull, misty and wet with a nasty wind chill factor. The extra layers and compass were a must as well as GPS. Please note phone reception is very poor on this whole walk even at summits.
Park just below the last house at the end of the road. I met the farmer there who gave me permission to climb the track through his farmyard as long as i closed any gates. Ascending the track makes navigation easy but it's still hour to the top. As Skyehigh had said that the track could be hard to find for descent, I have marked the fence at the point directly opposite where the track begins. The blue Gebert sitting foam should last awhile (found it on the mountain so balance leave no trace with safety first!) and i have wedged in a small fence post as per photo. The climb to Coomcallee is easy - follow the fence line until it climbs a peat hag about 30 mins later. Very desolate and isolated with 30m visibility. Note as mentioned before that the mountain dips after height 642 by about 20m which may confuse in misty conditions. Views coming down about 550m where fabulous of the surrounding ridges. Linkback:
