As Tim Robinson points out, the Ordnance Survey has been incorrectly calling this mountain 'Leckavrea' for a hundred and fifty years. Leckavrea (Ir. Leic Aimhréidh) is the mountain to the E on the other side of Mám Aodha.   Corcóg is the 265th highest place in Ireland. Corcóg is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Maamturks area.

This amazing photo of Corcog was taken on 20/12/09 from Lackavrea, between snow showers. The colouring is as taken and was not adjusted. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/4309/

I am a little biased here because I have a great love for the Maamturks, and I also have a mad notion that video is a medium through which our beautiful places can be especially revealed. The knowledge that Martin and Sharron, gifted filmmakers, had crossed the Turks had me drooling in anticipation and I was not dissappointed. This is a compulsory movie for anyone who hopes to do the traverse or part of it, or who has already been there. It was a two day journey with a night under the stars at Maumean. The light on the first day was quite extraordinary and Martin and Sharron exploited the opportunities provided to brilliant effect. Day Two was more cloudy brooding and moody. But the total effect so beautifully filmed shows the sparkling West- quartzite, lakes and huge skies- to magnificient effect. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/6373/

Corcogemore was our first stop on a 4-top trek towards Binn Mhor, using paulromanvaas's suggested starting point of the layby north of Lake Maumee. Unfortunately we could barely see an arm's length for the entire day, but the rain did bring the minor compensation of multiple waterfalls as seen in pic Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/4246/

We climbed Corcóg on 5th April 2008. We parked at the second layby north of Lake Maumee. The crossing to the first slope was through some boggy peat. We probably didn't take the most sensible route up and found ourselves navigating around some fairly steep crags at Lat53.484966Long9.564395. This took a long time. Ultimately we started main ascent around Lat53.482561Long9.559790 and continued in a NW direction, keeping in from the edge of those steep crags and then straight W from about Lat53.484426Long9.567785.
All in all, quite a challenge (we're only beginners), but the fantastic views and wild landscape were a real joy. I'm not sure what the mountain across to the east (seen in my picture) is called, but it looks like a fun climb too.

Start at Maam Cross and follow bog road to Maum. Where fence turns left the accross bog the ascent to Corog can begin. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/1382/
