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. Knockaunapeebra / Cnocán an Phíopaire is the name of a a lower peak to the SW.   Kilclooney Mountain is the highest mountain in the Comeragh Mountains area and the 48th highest in Ireland. Kilclooney Mountain is the second highest point in county Waterford.

Deise splendour
by Kennyj  5 Sep 2015
Taking advantage of the good forecast I headed for the Mahon Falls this morning,parking at the upper car park and climbing to spot height 414 along the road before climbing along the fence north west up the steep slope onto Comeragh mountain.Following the track around
the top of Coummahon until I crossed the river above the falls.
The crossing was easy today but I'm told in winter this may be impossible,After crossing the river I headed northeast up onto Knockaunpeebra with its two distinctive cairns,from here down into the boggy col and up onto Fauscoum or spot height 792 as pointed out on other comments here.The summit is uninspiring but a 450m walk North East you'll see one of the finest views in any mountain range-Coumshigaun lake,after enjoying the sambos sitting above the lake I returned to Fauscoum before heading southwest crossing the river and making for the high ground back around Coummahon finishing at the three cairns on Comeragh mountain and back to the car.Time 3 hrs 35 mins,distance 11km,ascent 733 m,descent 762m.
