Also known as An Ghuala Ghorm [TH], 'the blue shoulder'. 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.   Coomcallee is the 204th highest place in Ireland.

With my reputation as a guarantee of good weather hanging by a thread, it was a relief that Sunday 14th December granted me a borderline magical trip around Lynam's 'Maughernane Circuit'. The previous few days of precipitation had left a good covering of snow on the ground, but (save for the odd brief bracing shower of hail) I was blessed with bright winter sunshine. I started from just east of the bridge over the Oveveen River (597698 B) where a green strip on the south side of the road is sufficiently substantial to allow a car to park on it without preventing its use as a passing place, before heading off clockwise, preferring to do the smidge of road walking at the start. 'No Trespassing' signs adorn both the fence on the near side of the river and the first dwelling encountered on the right: with that in mind, I went over the next gate after the dwelling, keeping down on the Cloonaghlin Lough side of the shoulder for a few hundred yards, before striking more directly uphill. A track can be picked up (not marked on the map, but obvious on the ground) which eases passage up to about 400m. A steep but straightforward climb leads to an easing at about 500m, before a couple of more gradual steps bring you out on the plateau near point 642m. In the clear weather I had it was easy to skip said point to the east for the final short climb to the top, a great vantage point for this convoluted corner of Iveragh and its glorious coastline. A fence leads WNW from here to continue the circuit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/192/comment/3478/
