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.

I parked just where the farm road crosses the river a few hundred yards in from the Doo Lough junction. From there I followed the road three miles or so over the watershed and climbed to the Tievnabinnia south ridge after the last forestry. The ridge has a fair number of peat hags but not the troublesome sort. Finding Tievnabinnia on the plateau could be tricky in poor visibility and maybe not worth doing. In good visibility it shows you the Reek and Clew bay and going west from it you’re on a three mile amble through heaven. First to the South you get Ben Gorm. Then the 12 Pins appear. You haven’t much up or down but the navigation would have to be good in mist. The lochan halfway along makes a good accuracy check. A narrow ridge connects the last two tops but it’s not a challenge. It’s worth going right to the end of the summit plateau to get the full view of Mweelrea’s corries. The descent is easy with more fine views. Trip was under 5 hours but I’d no food, friends or camera. Just enthusing about the panoramas could add an hour. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/60/comment/585/
