Despite being the highest of the Comeraghs, this is a rather unremarkable summit above the spectacular valley of Coumshingaun. The circuit of Coumshingaun comprises the ascent and descent of two dramatic ridges. The cliffs at the back of the valley offer some of the finest rock-climbs in Ireland. The name Fáschom properly refers to the next coom immediately south of Coumshingaun. The name may refer either to its wild nature or to the fact that, unlike many of the cooms which cut into the Comeragh plateau, it has no lake. The name Kilclooney Mountain, recorded by East-West Mapping, derives from the extensive townland of Kilclooney in which the peak is situated. Knockaunapeebra / Cnocán an Phíopaire is the name of a lower peak to the SW.
Kilclooney Mountain is the highest mountain in the Comeragh Mountains area and the 50th highest in Ireland. Kilclooney Mountain is the highest point in county Waterford. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/48/
