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.   Fauscoum is the highest mountain in the Comeragh Mountains area and the 48th highest in Ireland. Fauscoum is the highest point in county Waterford.

HimiWack on Kilclooney Mountain, 2009

I did the Mahon Falls Circle at 16. June 2009. Started in the morning by the main carpark at the Mahon Falls and climbed the hillside on the left to Comeraghmountain. From here it is a lovely walk on top of the steep crags which are falling down to Mahon Valley on the right side. Crossing the Waterfall at the top and with a little climbing i reached the top of Knockaunapeebra with his characteristical 2 cairns. Heading north-eastwards its a short walk to Fauscoum. This part is very boggy especialy after heavy rain. From the summit i continued walking in north-east direction and after 15 minutes i arrived at the cirque of Coumshingaun Lake. Here are very nice views down to the lake and over the grasslands which extend to the coastline of Waterford. Turning right and following the brink of cirque i started my way back. After a while the road and the carpark by the Mahon Falls appears in south/south-western direction. Facing the carpark i walked on a trackless terrain down to Mahon river. Biside a big rock it is possible to cross the river on an easy way. But attention - after heavy rain it is very difficult, nearly impossible, to cross the river - it´s a stream then.
