Harry Goodman on Corrig Mountain, 2010
by Harry Goodman  4 Apr 2010
For start of my walk to Corrig Mountain on 6 Mar 2010 see my comments on Seahan. The walk down to the coll and then up to Corrig Mountain is boggy but very straightforward. As I had not climbed it before I decided to combine it with a walk over Seahan. It is about 1k from Seahan to Corrig and once there rather than retrace my steps as planned I decided to continue on and complete the full Circuit of Kilbride with a walk to Seefingan and Seefin to the S, two tops that I had previously climbed. Without doubt Corrig Mountain is very much the poor relation of the four tops around Kilbride. The other three all have fine megalithic cairns on or near their high points while poor old Corrig has a flat top with small cement boundary markers indicating the edge of the Kilbride Firing Range. This therefore is a mountain which I feel would best be climbed as part of a greater circuit, in my case around Kilbride, or as part of a walk to Seahan. From the top the views S are restricted by Kippure and Seefingan but Dublin to the NE is clearly visable. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/247/comment/4577/

Geo on Corrig Mountain, 2009

From Kippure, we head not quite directly at Corrig but aimed for the saddle between Seefingan and Corrig, so as not to lose too much elevation, and to avoid the peat hags on the direct route between Kippure and Seefingan. While making this crossing which is not too bad, a few streams to cross and heather in places to drag through we had an unusual experience. There were deer running away from us in the distance and as we approached, a doe (mammy deer) and a fawn (baby deer) ran ahead moving uphill to the left. A few minutes later we practically walked on the fawn who was lying curled up in some grass. He/She never tried to escape but stayed put, although panting, either out of fear, or from the earlier exertions or both! Anyway with this experience we pushed on, not wanting to disturb the creature. We made it up to the top of Corrig with no more Attenborough moments, and found the summit marked by a concrete pillar, one of the many which bound the borders of Kilbride Rifle Range, from here the next stage was Seahan, see entry for last section of walk.

The crossing from Seefingan to Corrig is the longest part of the circuit of Kilbride and by far the boggiest with bog holes and pools scattered across the landscape. Corrig itself is the poor relation in the circuit with it's summit having little to offer. It is marked with another military range concrete pillar sitting in the middle of a boggy pool as well as a couple of poles. What the summit lacks in asthetics, it makes up for with superb views out across Dublin with Howth and Ireland's eye visible. The distinctive triangular cone of the Great Sugar Loaf is also visible poking up behind the nearby hills, looking very much like one of the Great Pyramids.

One to bag
by YoungJohn  1 Apr 2011
Took the n81 out of Dublin until Brittas where we turned off left and after a car dismantlers veered right before coming to a T junction where we could see the Armay camp. Then along with two friends I climbed Corrig via Seahan while doing the 'Kilbride' circuit. We were lucky that the low lying cloud passed and a clear view of Corrig, Seefingan and Seefin miraculously appeared. We were also lucky in that the mountains were 'dry' under foot. Corrig is marked by a pole which was denuded of its sign. Wicklore covers most of my intended comment so .... Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/247/comment/6292/

On its own, like a lost puppy! As mentioned already, this mountain seems only to be visited as part of another trek. All the same it is worth the effort to go to the summit.
I went there from the summit of Seahan and it takes only a few minutes across the saddle. The middle of the saddle can be a bit soft and wet under foot, but nothing to taxing. There is a clear path straight from one summit to the other. The summit needs a little TLC as there is a small quagmire surrounding the marker point.
There was a magnificent view E over to the Sugar Loaf and S down over Blessington Lakes. Do not spoil the job for a 'hap-worth of tar' and visit this summit if you are near Seahan or the other nearby summits. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/247/comment/6778/

The walk from Seefingan to Corrig is relatively straightforward if not a bit boggy in places. Very pleased with the views but not quite as good as Seahan. Lovely views of Dublin & the bay areas. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/247/comment/17780/
