Carrauntoohils height - MV says 1038.591m
Although Peter would have you believe that me swinging from the cross possibly broke it, some of what he says is actually true.
The summit has been surveyed on 2 occasions by Mountainviews using a high definition gps.
Mountainviews defines the summit as the highest natural projection, which in Carrauntoohils case is a rock outcrop 3 meters south east of the cross, easting 80363.5, northing 84421.2, measured at 1038.591 on 25/02/2012, projected accuracy 0.1mtrs.

Now though it gets complicated. The old 6" map lists it at 3414 feet(1040.587m) using the Poolbeg datum. However this needs to be converted to the Malin datum which modern maps use.
This gives us a converted height of 1037.887m.

Bearing in mind that we do not know what exactly the survey team who compiled the data for the 6" maps were measuring to, this can account somewhat for the difference with our own figure.
