The summit of Conigar is NOT located at the point suggested here (W 060 628 C) (566m). If you look at the OS map closely, you can see a '570m' contour just underneath the 'ar' in the English spelling of Conigar. The Irish spelling obscures most of the contour detail and it is very easy to miss. Going by the shape of the summit, I would estimate that the correct height is probably about 572m. The correct location for the summit is W 0664 6387 D. The attached photo shows the view back up the ridge from the incorrect summit of 566m. The yellow line shows the outline of the 564m hill in between and the true summit of Conigar is shown approx 1km to the NE. There are no features on the summit other than 2 small piles of stones on a rock. The easiest way to get to it is probably to take a short detour (1km) to the SW from Lough Glas if you are doing the Gougane Barra horseshoe walk. The ground is very wet with lots of pools to get around. It must be even worse in the Wintertime. The views from there and the false summit to the SW are very good with most of the mtns in West Cork visible as well as Bantry Bay and Sheeps Head.
