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 267th highest summit in Ireland. Corcóg is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Maamturks area.

I parked at L97358 47989 A, taking care not to block access to the gate off the R336 Maam Cross - Maam road. There's space for one or two cars here. I headed northwest, pretty much in a straight line towards the summit. Boggy at first, the terrain becomes increasingly steep until you get to within a kilometre or so of the summit, whereupon you have to scale the walls of what just might be a corrie. Up top, the terrain changes from bog to the typical Maamturks/Twelve Bens summit carpet of rock. The clouds lifted momentarily, enabling me to take this shot across to Mullach Glas and Binn Mor.
If you're planning on heading for these peaks, I'd recommend aiming first for L948 497 B, before heading west. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/4435/
