Picture: Stone Cross of Corrin.
Historical Site.
by sandman 18 Sep 2016
The large cairn at the summit dates back to the Bronze Age and it is said the Druid Mogh Ruith is buried here, encircling the summit is an Iron Age Fort. The large stone cross which is visible from the motorway was erected in 1933 which is illuminated at Christmas and Easter. Park at the Coillte car park CorinWd (W80343 95396) and follow the 14 Stations of the Cross up to the summit. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1503/comment/18635/

Picture: Fiachras "Scouts on a Summit"
Hot Chocolate and methylated spirits.
by jackill 24 Oct 2017
Probably once the site of a pagan ritual or two, this hilltop is more usually used for investing new members of Fermoy 18/19th Scout Group. This time it was Fiachra who was baptized by the smell of burning methylated spirits on 4 trangias and hot chocolate boiled almost to death. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1503/comment/19741/

Picture: A bit of sunshine at last !!
A family stroll.
by David-Guenot 10 Jan 2017
Climbed this hill in November 2014, with a friend who used to live in the area. Starting at the Coillte car park, we did a nice loop on the forest paths, circling around the hill in an anticlockwise direction before making it to the summit and its large cross. No big views on this cloudy day, until this little bit of sunshine as we started our descent. Ascending directly from the carpark, there is only some 100m climbing on a good track/path, so this can easily be done with young children. Must say thank you to Sandman for the interesting historical explanations. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1503/comment/18795/

Perfect for the Smallies
by SpiritOf84 7 Aug 2020
Ideal for the little ones (ages 4 and 7) to introduce them to hillwalking. Steep path takes you from the Coilte car park directly to the summit, with its large stone cross and impressive views across Fermoy to Castlehyde on the Blackwater. Approx 25 mins to summit (taking account of little legs). Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1503/comment/20840/
