Carronadavderg is the highest point in the Drum Hills (Ir. Drom Fhinín [LL]). Canon Power says of this height: This carn is erroneously marked as Sliabh Grainn on old maps. A remarkable eminence visible for many miles in three directions. A wild legend accounts for the name. Fionn and a contemporary giant had a difference as to the ownership of a certain red bull. In the heat of the dispute the rival proprietors seized each a horn of the beast and pulled the creature in twain.   Carronadavderg is the 1047th highest place in Ireland. Carronadavderg is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Comeragh Mountains area.

Picture: Lacklustre summit
 
Easy access to mast covered wood encircled summit
Short Summary created by simon3, wicklore,  10 Jan 2015
Start at X16762 87593 A and follow the access road up to the summit area about 900m away.
The flattish summit has six main masts, buildings and a little wooden hut.
The summit Trig Pillar, adorned with a peace symbol, sits on top of the remains of a cairn. There are cows in the fields on each side of the access road, so keep dogs under control.
There is forestry near the summit, but the summit area has been cleared to accommodate the masts.
The summit area has limied views mainly south but at the edge of the trees to the north there are good views of the Knockmealdowns and Comeraghs. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/956/comment/5715/
