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.

Great ridge walk
by TommyV  20 May 2019
Parked at the spot mentioned by weedavie at L84489 67685 A. I followed the road along the Sheefrey pass for about three kilometers. You will come across a Coilte forest which has a road that zig zgs up the hill through the forest. On the last zag the open mountain is on your left. There is a few hundred metres of felled trees to contend with but its not nearly as bad as it looks. After this you will be on the shoulder of the spur leading up to the trig point on Tievummera. Now the hard work is done it's time to enjoy the stunning views and the ridge walk over to Barrclashcame. About 500 metres South West of here there are superb views of Doo Lough and the Mweelrea range. From here I dropped back down to the Southern end of Doo Lough back to the car. Note the ground here is very steep and if it's any way wet I would suggest heading over to the North West top and drop down to the famine memorial instead. It's easy to follow the road from here along by the lake. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/60/comment/20532/
