Mullacor Mountain Mullach Mór A name in Irish
(Ir. Mullach Mór [PNCW*], 'big summit') Wicklow County, in Arderin, Vandeleur-Lynam, Irish Highest Hundred Lists, Dark blue-grey slate, phyllite & schist Bedrock

Height: 657m OS 1:50k Mapsheet: 56 Grid Reference: T09271 93912 This summit has been logged as climbed by 605 members. Recently by: sandilandsn, 21yearsgone, colmdoggett, Damien25, PeakPaul, lw24, IndyMan, Krumel, Peter Walker, marcw, Garmin, tommyclarke, tsmoynihan, Coles, James-a-walsh
I have climbed this summit: NO (You need to be a logged-in member to change this.)

Longitude: -6.373736, Latitude: 52.985315 , Easting: 309271, Northing: 193912 Prominence: 102m,   Isolation: 1.6km
ITM: 709196 693968,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Mlcr, 10 char: Mullacor
Bedrock type: Dark blue-grey slate, phyllite & schist, (Maulin Formation)

The séimhiú of mhór is odd, since mullach is usually masculine and so one would expect 'Mullach Mór'. Price recorded the pronunciation 'Mullawore'. Theoretically, it could be Mullach Corr. However, in addition to the difficulty of explaining the cited pronunciation, corr as an adjective in place-names usually means 'pointed' rather than 'round', which would certainly not be appropriate for the dome of Mullacor.   Mullacor is the 182nd highest summit in Ireland.

Foggy Day Walk
by Geansai  25 Jun 2011
Mullacor can be reached in an hour and a half from the car park across the road from the pub at the glenmalure crossroads. If you feel like walking for exercise on a foggy day, forest tracks take you up to 550 meters and you can keep your bearings easy enough once out of the forest. Turn right at the crossroads and walk up the road a few hundred yards to the forest entrance on the left side of the road. There's a good map on a sign hear showing the forest tracks.Follow the wicklow way to a junction ( large boulder in the middle of the track just before the junction) . Turn right here instead of continuing left on the wicklow way. Soon you'll come to another junction. Keep left. Stay on the main stoney forest tracks. Ignore any grassy tracks that lead off. The track hairpins up to the left and you turn right just after this. Its straight on up now for over a mile. Then the track hairpins up to the left at some kind of little hut. You'll lose some height before coming to another junction shortly afterwards. Turn right and a few more minutes will bring you to the end of the track. Go up some steps here, straight on through a clearing and then bearing right to get out of the forest. You'll see a fence which is a good landmark for the way back. You start ascending with the forest edge to your left. Looking back you'll see a very long tree bough landmark sticking out at around a forty five degree angle just after the fence where you emerged.There are also some posts at intervals on the way up to Mullacor summit which is about 25 minutes from exiting the forest. You'll soon leave the forest edge behind and reach the flat summit area. I had to push on over boggy ground for a few hundred more yards before finding the cairn which seems to be on the north west side of the summit. Couldn't see anything for twenty yards in the fog up here but it was easy to retrace my steps back to the forest track. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/177/comment/6377/
