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.

Corcogemore or Corcóg near Maam Cross
by 196xim  21 Feb 2022
hi.

Last year myself and the 7 year old climbed Lackavrea (2/3 km from Maam Cross) Some views !!
https://mountainviews.ie/summit/846/

We were admiring the mountain across the road; Corcogemore or Corcóg - and would love to climb it.

Being with an 8year old, would like the most straight forward route. Would the the attached be the most straight forward route? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/23417/
