The name Keamconneragh is marked at this exact spot on the OS 6 map. It describes the narrow arete leading E off Teeromoyle Mountain, rather than the minor peak on it. Previously Teeromoyle Tooth, and earlier Coomacarrea Tooth in MV.   Keamconneragh is the 307th highest place in Ireland.

"The rib of land that joins Coumreagh or Conaire to Teermoyle is strictly a one man pass." So says Richard Mersey [The Hills of Cork & Kerry] of the arête. He goes on to mention that there is a path, one of few that exist around the Glenbeigh Horseshoe.

The land beyond is flat and boggy and eventually descends by relatively easy slopes. The picture shows the arête, so narrow that it is possible to see the lakes on both sides, Coomaglasaw to the left and Coomasaharn to the right and 300m down. Part of the path can just be made out on the left, misty side. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/274/comment/1883/

A question that begs to be asked is "Is Coomcarrea Tooth a separate top?". The original list that MV is based on counted summits over 600m that had at least a drop of 15m as summits. (As time goes on we are revising the list .. but that's another story). The map seems to show enough contours to reasonably assume a drop of 15m.

I wasn't so sure when I saw the Tooth edge on from east of Coomacarrea (framed by Been Hill and Beenmore). So I measured the height in the bottom of the narrow col and the top of the Tooth. Difference was 11m only. Even allowing for the vagaries of GPS in these days before "EGNOS" correction is turned on, that means it doesn't qualify.

But hey, it's one of the few bits of exposure on the circuit so we will have to find some way to incorporate it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/274/comment/1884/

Can a photo tell a lie?
by fingalscave  29 Aug 2012
EDIT: Just realised the measure of prominence is 30m and not 15m, so it wouldn't qualify. Curiously however on the OS map, V611 842 A (Mv coordinates for Keamconneragh) is shown as 608m. There is a pt 593 shown on the OS map but this is some distance away. This point appears to be what is circled in the MV relief map. Any thoughts?

Does Keamconneragh have the requisite 15m of prominence as measured between it's top and the bottom of the col? In the photo, the figures are descending west from the Tooth down towards the col with Teeromoyle mountain. It appears to show at least that minimum requirement. However by my measurement, the difference is only 13m! Taken with simon3's 2005 reading of 11m, it appears it may not make the grade alas.

Perhaps another outing for the Trimble?

While we're at it, perhaps a measurement of a possible Mullaghanattin East Top (pt 594) which I measured with two separate units as being over the required prominence, 30m metres is this case for a sub 600m top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/274/comment/14774/
