Barrclashcame (from Irish: Barr Chlais Céim, meaning "top of Clais Céim")[1] is a 772 m (2,533 ft) mountain in County Mayo, Ireland.

Geography[edit]

The mountain is in the townland of Clashcame and is the highest peak of the Sheeffry Hills.[1]

A short distance to the northwest is the peak called Barrclashcame Northwest or Storikeennageer (580 m)[3] and to the northeast is the peak of Tievummera (762 m).[4] The mountain overlooks Doo Lough, Glencullin and Glenummera (to the south and west), which separate it from Mweelrea and Ben Gorm.
