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 253rd highest place in Ireland. Corcóg is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Maamturks area.

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 Lat53.484966 ALong9.564395 B. This took a long time. Ultimately we started main ascent around Lat53.482561 CLong9.559790 D and continued in a NW direction, keeping in from the edge of those steep crags and then straight W from about Lat53.484426 ELong9.567785 F.
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/
