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.Term Trig added when it was found to be slightly lower than a point ~600m west in 2024.   Tievummera Trig is the second highest mountain in the Sheeffry Hills area and the 72nd highest in Ireland.

Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy  19 May 2024
Be aware that this summit is slightly lower than Tievummera Highpoint, which is ~600m to the West.
From the SE, start at L87195 67480 starA. Use the forest roads to gain height and then go on to the very walkable SE spur that extends from Tievummera Trig. Time will be around 90 to 120m to the top.
From the NW via Barrclashcame. Park at viewing point lay-by at L824 699 starB, which is marked by a Doo Lough tragedy memorial. Head east for 1.5km towards the NW Top, and the ground starts to rise sharply, and is long grass hiding multiple holes etc. It eases after 300m and is more navigable, short grass and rocks. Having ascended the Barrclashcame NW Top, turn SE for 1km - going is grassy but firm. After dipping to about 520m it starts to rise again, gently at first, but then very steeply. There is a large rocky scramble for about 100m at point L844 694 starC which spectacularly overlooks Doo Lough, and which could be dangerous in poor conditions. Now turn NE for a gentle ramble of 500m to reach the summit cairn of Barrclashcame, which sits in a featureless grassy area. Continue directly east for about 500m, crossing a very narrow ridge which drops sharply to both sides. This is easily navigable in good conditions, but could be tricky on a windy day or in poor visibility. Turn SE at point L855 694 starD and simply follow the natural contour of the ridge in a semi-circular direction for about 800m, which will take you to the summit trig pillar sitting amid a broad grassy area.

Great views of Croagh Patrick to the north and along the way you have a good view of Tawnyard Valley, the Ben Gorms, Mweelrea ridge and lots more! Recommend allowing 3 hours from car to top for this route. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/67/comment/4827/
