No escape from the modern world
by csd  9 May 2010
Despite its modest elevation, Corn Hill has one of the largest TV/telecommunications installations adorning its summit I've seen on this island. The forestry is beginning to encroach on the view from the top, and the constant drone of the air conditoners in the service building take away from the attraction of this summit, but at least it's very easily gained! The presence of such a large telecomms installation means that I'm typing this as I sit beside the summit cairn, with a good 3G signal to speed the upload of the photo I've just taken! Is this MV's first 'live on the scene' comment? :) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/4697/

Picture: The mast. Some say its ugly, to me its like a modern art instillation at the summit.
Well worth the walk - even from the wrong direction
by tomasocarthaigh  1 May 2014
I came up the wrong face, over fields and bog not on paths, to spite my best efforts to follow the "maer ditch" by kind permission of a local landowner. It was worth it though, the views that end are spectacular.

Coming down the correct path, and walking to Edenmore via Mallons Cross, Aughadowery Cross was a walk in itself.

As a writer - according to myself, I wrote these few words after: http://www.writingsinrhyme.com/index.php/cairn-hill-stanzas-from-the-summit/ Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/16048/

I climbed this the same day as Mullaghmeen in Westmeath and Slieve na Caillagh in Meath thus bagging three county high points in the one day. It was away back in 2005 so dont remember much other than that it was maybe the easist high point of the lot. There is only one room for a car to park at the bottom of the tv road. The views are good but not 360 degrees owing to the tv mast and the accompanying clump of trees at the top Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/3321/

Corny end
by eamonoc  1 Nov 2013
Thursday 31/10/2013. The finish to my Nth Midlands trip, this top was the most disappointing, but it had the highest mast by a long shot. It took me 13mins from car to car. This was my fifth summit today, when all was said and done I had travelled 366kms for these five summits. Would never have dreamed of visitng these places except for Mt Views.

paulocon on Corn Hill, 2008
by paulocon  27 Nov 2008
Combined a jaunt up Corn Hill with a trip to Mullaghmeen yesterday to take in 2 county high-points in one day. Took the children along and Corn Hill provides a short but pleasant walk with the summit accessible via a small service road that lies beyond a locked gate. The hill suffers visually in a number of ways, totally dominated by the huge RTE mast and it's service buildings along with the myriad of stay wires which stretch out in all directions on the summit. Views are limited by the forestry plantation at the top sections of the hill - one man I met informed me that he saw the trees as an affront to the hill and that prior to their planting, you could see nine counties from the trig pillar. The trig pillar is located down a path to the right of the mast and sits atop a grass-covered cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/3417/

Family outing to the highest point in Longford

I turned my parents into County Toppers yesterday as we took a pleasant stroll up Corn Hill, with my son and Ginger (momentarily probably the highest dog in the midlands) completing the party. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/5955/
