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.

Glantrasna's Highpoint
Short Summary created by Onzy  21 Jul 2015
Coomnadiha is the highest point of the hills surrounding the Glantrasna valley.

From the west, on the R571, there is a gated farm track at V80519 60522 A with room to park one car without blocking the entrance. From here the track leads almost to the summit of Knockreagh and from there over mixed ground to Coomhadiha. An out-and-back from here should take around three hours. Coomhadiha could also be approached from parking deep within Glantrasna itself, at V82637 59648 B, although this involves some steep overgrown ground, particularly at the lower reaches.

A more complete route is to take in the summit as part of a circuit of the entire valley. Parking at either point allows access to a round taking in Knockreagh, Coomnadiha, Caha (not MV-listed), Droppa and Cummenbaun. In either case an amount of road-walking will be necessary. The entire circuit should take around 6 hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/203/comment/4963/
