Named Cuscamecurragh on Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830). This seems to represent the Ir. Coiscéim Charrach, 'rocky footstep', a name which is also found further north in Mayo in the Nephin Beg Range. 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.   Tievummera is the second highest mountain in the Sheeffry Hills area and the 68th highest in Ireland.

Picture: Summit trig from point 500m east of Barrclashcame
 
Long walk from either direction
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  24 Jul 2013
May be approached from the NE i.e from Tievnabinnia or from the NWW via Barrclashcame. This route describes the latter. Parked at viewing point lay-by at L824 699 A, 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 B 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 C 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.
