The little hill of Corran is probably best viewed from a distance.
Its summit is covered in woods and blighted by no less than 3 masts, but this does mean it is easy to reach from the road W66873 95524 by means of forest tracks.
It does however overlook two places of note.
The first is the townland of Ballygriffin which is the birthplace of the founder of Presentation sisters Nano Nagle. She brought solice to the poor of Cork in the 18th century.Her family farm is now the location of a retreat centre and organic farm
Nearby in the village of Killavullen is the birthplace Richard Hennessy who was born in Ballymacmoy House . He also brought solice to the people of Cork .He went to France in 1740 and became an officer in Dillon's Irish Regiment in the French Army. In 1765, he went to the Charente departement and set up the distillery that produces Hennessy brandy. The distillery continues to this day, as does the Hennessy line in the company. The Hennessy house at Killavullen overlooking the river Blackwater, can still be seen today.
A poem by Raphael Consedine says of the Nagle Mountains,
"The blossoming hedgerows sang freedom,
The river told stories of places far away,
While beyond, dreaming mountains called." Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/793/comment/2810/
