Dabhach (gen. daibhche), a vessel, vat, press or well, is also used in place-names to refer to some depression or recess; cf. Letterdyfe, Leitir Daibhche, a townland in Connemara where the hole in question may be a cave, and Culdaff, Cúil Dabhcha, Co. Donegal, where it seems to refer to a stone with holes bored in it. The peak named Caha (Ir. Cnoc na Ceachan), although it apparently gives its name to the range as a whole, is actually only a minor bump on the southern shoulder of Coomnadiha. Caha, Ir. An Ceacha, was probably the name of a gorge immediately below, before being transferred to this peak. See Caha Mountains for more on the origin of this name.
Coomnadiha is the third highest mountain in the Caha Mountains area and the 208th highest in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/203/
