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 656th highest place in Ireland.

Round of Inchinagoum 3
by three5four0  15 Aug 2010
From Knockboy South Summit, we were able to descend directly, down grassy slopes, to the river. And re cross it, this time below the small dam / hydro workings. And climb directly up hill towards Coomhola, there are some atv tracks here.

There is new fencing being erected along this hill, of the awkward type too! We crossed at a fence junction at roughly V99398 59755 B, turning left here and making straight for the summit. Which gave more fine views in the evening sun, out to Bantry Bay.

We returned to the point we crossed the fence and continued on north, along side the fence, past pt464 to roughly V99347 60326 C, where we turned west and shortly reached the old track and descended to the road. Walked back up the road to the Priests Leap, where we had parked our car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/540/comment/6018/
