As Tim Robinson points out, the Ordnance Survey has been incorrectly calling this mountain 'Leckavrea' for a hundred and fifty years. Leckavrea (Ir. Leic Aimhréidh) is the mountain to the E on the other side of Mám Aodha.   Corcóg is the 253rd highest place in Ireland. Corcóg is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Maamturks area.

Corcogemore was our first stop on a 4-top trek towards Binn Mhor, using paulromanvaas's suggested starting point of the layby north of Lake Maumee. Unfortunately we could barely see an arm's length for the entire day, but the rain did bring the minor compensation of multiple waterfalls as seen in pic Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/4246/
