Wonderful in all but name
by Colin Murphy  19 Nov 2012
Followed skyehigh's directions for ascending Coomcallee from the SW, then headed 1km NE across mostly grassy terrain which was pretty easy going, before swinging west just past the small but beautiful Lough Coomeenatierna. Another 800m of steep climbing over mostly rocky terrain brought me to the summit, which offers spectacular views of the entire Dunkerron range and across the bay to the Cahas towards the south. The mountain is quite spectacular viewed across the valley from Coomcallee and is definitely worth the effort. The top doesn't even merit a name on the OSI map, which seems ridiculous given its prominence and impressive aspect. What exactly is OSI's criteria for naming mountains, one wonders?

Followed Kerry Way until it emerged from wood at 62811 65060 starB where a rough track ascended NW towards Esknaloughoge.
Track descends into pool at one point and you may have to negotiate it very carefully to avoid wet feet.
Very steep ground between Esknaloughoge and Lough Sallagh which can be avoided by traversing east before heading north. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/294/comment/18659/

Watch out for the water.
by simon3  19 Sep 2021
The picture shows Coomnahorna to the left and Lough Slievenashaska. You can't get round the lough on its south side shown here. You probably can't get across the lough to its north side either, though I haven't personally tried. You can't easily contour round Coomnahorna over the lake. You may or may not be able to get down from the col shown from Coomnahorna to Slievenashaska S, but if you manage it, you could be stuck behind the lough.

And also, the stream leaving the lough was not readily crossable after heavy rain and this would cut off retreat routes downhill.

Sorry to need to bring you all the can'ts. It's still a magnificent lake. Just remember it has teeth. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/294/comment/23276/
