The only difficulty with this one is finding the summit trig!
Short Summary created by acorn,  11 Mar 2014
Corronoher lies north east of the Co Limerick village of Kilmeedy. There is ample parking at forestry entrance R40192 30370 A and no access issues. The forestry track is shown accurately on OS sheet 65. Once through the barrier follow the forestry road east with evidence of hurricane Darwin's visit very visible all around you. The track rises gradually swinging north then west to a fork at R41259 30954 B. Keep right at the fork and continue for 300m to a layby on the left at R 41026 31132 C. Facing into the layby head to the right hand corner. Nothing for it now but to head into the trees and follow your nose to the high ground roughly SW. It's only a short distance to the trig point located on a mossy mound in a tiny clearing. No views save the trees. Your reward will be actually finding it !

So the view is gone...

I lived about 1km north of Corronoher from 1960-1971 and climbed it many times. At first there was no plantation or trig point, that happened in the mid 60's I think. There used to be excellent views across the county and even catch glimpses of the Reeks in Kerry. My grandfather was proud to have climbed it in his 80's.

Another one for summit baggers
by hivisibility  10 Mar 2014
Easiest way to access the summit is to park at R402304 D, outside the forest barrier. There is also another barrier right across the road with plenty of room for parking. Continue up the trail. Views are restricted but after approx 10 minutes you emerge where a large amount of treefelling has taken place. Good views over South Limerick / North Cork on a good day. Continue on this trail until you meet a fork at R414309 E and keep to the right. After about 5 minutes look out for a large clearing area [probably a turning circle] on your left.
Turn left here and keep to the right of the clearing, and scramble up the steepish bank into the trees. You are approx 80 metres from the summit from here. the trees are fairly close together here but somebody has kindly removed the lower branches so access is fine. Summit trig will be on your right on a mossy mound. Sadly no views as completely surrounded by trees. to return retrace your steps. 1 hour approx.

Trig hidden,as well as the Ford Fiesta similarly buried amongst dense forest
by eamonoc  12 Jun 2015
Here we go again, the Boggeraghs and a Fiat car and now a nice little hill in Limerick with a hidden trig and a Ford Fiesta for company. A question for acorn, geohappy and hivisibility did any of you see the car parked / dumped neatly in the middle
of the forest just above and to the left of the Layby mentioned in your very helpful directions. I had my teenage daughter with me on this
trip and again delighted as she was with reaching another obscure hill top in Ireland, she witnessed once again an unsavoury side of
a culture that exsists in this beautiful Island of ours. No apologies for my rant! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1184/comment/18018/

Hidden Fiesta.
by hivisibility  12 Jun 2015
Hi eamonoc, I had forgotten the car hidden in the trees. Yes it was there when I ascended. youre right about the descration of the hills. Sadly not the first out of place motor I've come across on my wanderings. I followed a trail of car parts up to Corran hill on the Nagles. Another car in an impossible location [ the effort it took to get there!!] on one of the Shannon summits, and a lawnmower in the absolute middle of nowhere in the Boggeraghs. Still none of these are a patch on Peter Walkers jetski on where the name escapes me now. Pity, but I suppose hardly surprising. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1184/comment/18019/
