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.

The summit of Fauscoum, the highest mountain in the Comeraghs, sits on a flattish rise, above the famous Coumshingaun valley and lake as attested by the following comment from HC Hart [Climbing in the British Isles 1895] “The mountains are singularly picturesque. The verdure-clad cliffs, overhanging the deep, rock-bound, lonely tarns, have an effect that is at once rare and beautiful.”

The photo taken at the summit on a misty day, shows Coumfea (or Knockaunapeebra) on the skyline to the right. No swifts I'm afraid, but we did see some further north. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/48/comment/966/
