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.

Corcogemore appears to have provided many interesting and ‘just happened to be there’ photo opportunities – csd’s photo of the cloud inversion, bryanmccabe’s snap of a curiously coloured Corcogemore from Lackavrea, and Colin Murphy’s shot of a rain-induced torrent of water. My contribution to this stock of curious photos is the attached picture which shows one of these torrents frozen in mid flow. It may even be the same waterfall as shown in Colin Murphy’s picture. Cute as it looked it still provided a hazardous obstacle to be negotiated. I discovered the best approach was to back off and find a way around!
