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 263rd highest place in Ireland. Corcóg is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Maamturks area.

A view from Corcogmore
by wicklore  19 Aug 2013
This photograph might take a moment to make sense as it is a bit of a kaleidescope of colours. It is of a frozen pool high on Corcogmore, with the Bunnacunneen and Lugnabrick summits beyond, and snow covered Devilsmother and Maumtrasna taking up the rear.This is one of the potential views availale to you if you venture up here in the winter. A clear day in summer would be even better! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/15082/
