Clashcame is a townland name, interpreted by John O'Donovan as Clais Céim, 'trench of the step'. This seems to relate to the name Cuscamecurragh, which on Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) refers to part of the high ridge of the Sheeffry Hills (see Tievummera). Clashcame is situated at the western foot of this ridge. Barrclashcame is the top part of the townland. Previously Clashcame in MV. Walks: for a route along the main E-W ridge of the Sheeffry Hills, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 62-63.   Barrclashcame is the highest mountain in the Sheeffry Hills area and the 61st highest in Ireland. Barrclashcame is the second most westerly summit in the Sheeffry Hills area.

New Comment: Taking the path least treaded
by Liamgavin  3 Jan 2018
Sheeffry Mountains (Cnoic Shíofra or the Fairy Mountains) are a series of hills, clustered through grassy led quiet slopes and weathered rock outcrops. The walk starts at Barnaderg close to the Sheeffry pass, with views across to Tawnyard Lough, Bengorm and Bencreggan. The walk follows west along an evenly sloped spur with the Glenlaur Horseshoe on the right. Most of the climbing will be complete after 3.5km when the mountain plateaus out at Tievnabinnia. From there the walk skirts the narrow path on a very slight incline past trigonometrical point at Tievummera (762m); the going is easy and soft until a minor col before Barrclashcame (772m). The views are spectacular with steep slopes and cliffs on both sides of the narrow path, Doolough and the Delphi valley are visible along with Mweelrea and Atlantic coastline glimpses. A short stony downhill scramble just below the brow after the summit needs to be cautiously approached, but it leads onto the last spot height at Clashcame (580m), before straggling downwards towards the Glenkeen valley and Carrowniskey River. The Sheeffry Mountains often receive little acclaim but the scenery, landscape and experience are second to none, this walk takes you through the best of it.
