Slievenashaska is the name of a townland in the parish of Kilcrohane which lies to the SE of this peak and reaches to the summit. Slievenashaska Lough is in this townland and is also known as the Fiddle Lake, apparently from its shape. The name Com Cait Con, which applies properly to the coom to the N of this peak, is understood locally as the 'hollow of the cat and the greyhound'. Thanks to An Brainse Logainmneacha for providing this information. The anglicised form Coomeathcun on the OSI map is a mis-spelling. Previously known as Coomcathcun on MV.   Sliabh na Seasca is the 342nd highest place in Ireland.
