Coomhola is a valley to the south-east. This peak, or perhaps a nearby hollow, is marked Coomleah (reading uncertain) on the Grand Jury Map of Co. Cork (1811). This may be an anglicised form of (An) Com Liath, ‘the grey hollow’.   Coomhola Mountain is the 653rd highest place in Ireland.

Low hill at the end of a good filler walk for a bad day.
Short Summary created by simon3  26 Apr 2011
The summit is the southerly extension of Knockboy and has good views over west Cork. It's easy to reach from the Priest's Leap road at a number of points such as V9894 6071 A. It's an easy enough walk of about 1500m to the top which has a small cairn, though you need to pick your route at times through some cliffs. Getting to the starting point by the narrow twisty road could almost be considered more exciting. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/540/comment/5299/
