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.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Corcogemore (<i>Corcóg</i>) in area Maamturks, Ireland
Picture: Corcóg from the west, showing the NS ridge that it is on.
 
Whitish quartizite mountain on a steep sided ridge with fine views.
Short Summary created by simon3  27 May 2022
Corcóg is the eastern end of the higher Maamturks, the spectacular linear range from near Maam Cross to Leenane. Its top is on an approximately NS ridge of over 1km. Famous for the Maamturks Challenge which starts on this mountain, it can be incorporated into shorter walks often from the south.
From the east start on the road at around L96487 49897 starA. You can proceed straight to the summit but a slightly less steep option goes sw first and then gains height more slowly.
From the south start at around L 93688 46767 starB from some parking on a rough road leading off the N59. Be very careful of closing gates meticulously around here. Follow a main forest road eastwards until it branches north beside a stream.
The views on a good day include a lot of the Maamturks and also Joyce Country, Lough Corrib and the Connemara coastline.
In mist and with map and compass the route to connect to Mullach Glas and the rest of the Turks is a classic problem in accurate navigation as it is necessary to proceed NW along the ridge from the summit to turn off at the correct place to get to the col.
