Summit position recently revised.
Short Summary created by Peter Walker, simon3  11 Jan 2015
The position of the highest point of this general area was reassessed in Nov 2014 and replaced by Bunnanimma. The former summit was called Carrickatee in MV with position H72704 14804 A.

The newly identified summit is still accessed from the lane running under Carrickatee, and the best of the limited parking is at (727149 B) adjacent to the water tower. Continue WSW along the lane which in time becomes a track. The summit area is clearly visible to the right, and is most easily accessed by climbing over a gate and then taking an oblique course across the field and over a (very) low wall.

Sticklers who insist on standing on the exact highest point of a hill are advised that Bunnanimma's summit is (currently, at least) covered by a substantial gorse bush, so armour might be an idea.

The Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland 1844 said Crieve or Bunnanimma mountain, though rising to less than 900 feet of altitude above sea-level, is the highest ground, not only in the parish, but in the county, and forms part of the central water-shed of the island. Its form is lumpish and spreading; its circumference round the base is about 6 miles; its rock is metalliferous, and has been mined near the parish church, for lead ore ..
