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.

Comeraghs highest point
Short Summary created by jackill,  24 Sep 2010
Park at Kilclooney wood S342 102 A , room here for 20 cars. Head through the woods from the north west corner of the carpark, you will reach a forestry road after 500 meters or so. Turn right and follow this road, past a cleverly disguised phone mast then through an area of low branches to a wire fence. Cross the fence and head uphill on a very rocky track. As the track swings west cross the boulder wall that runs alongside the track and go uphill towards Coumshingaun lakes mouth. At a very large erratic boulder pick up a track that leads all the way up the left hand side of the lake. The track going up picks its way through many large rock outcrops initially before becoming a narrowing ridge. You will reach a point just under the plateau with a steep and tricky looking climb. This is the only way up or down on this side of the lake and will bring you the final 40 meters up to the plateau. On the plateau head across bog to the summit cairn.
