Price has a good deal of information on this name: Pronounced Corrig·leitrim. The name of the hill which forms the northern spur of Sorrel Hill. It is quite well known, though it is not on the O. S. map. The old track which crossed the mountains between Douce Mountain and Gravale must have passed close to it... There is a cairn of stones on the hill [PNCW]. He also proposes this place as the identification for Liathdruim, mentioned in the 12th century Metrical Dindshenchas, suggesting it was of some importance. Previously Ballynatona in MV.   Carrigleitrim is the 904th highest place in Ireland.

Update - Clear-fell in progress - Summit now while you can!
by Geo  3 Mar 2013
As of March '13 when Liz50 and I climbed this, most of the forest from the barrier to the last 100m from the summit has been cleared. This and the dry weather made progress quick and easy, if a little messy where the debris is thick on the ground! If this is cleared up and the area drained & planted it will be arduous going so get there now if you haven't done this! Linkback:

I climbed this from a forest entrance reference O 148 044 A. Walked up the forest track to its end,
then had to bash my way through some fairly densely planted trees to reach the summit. This appears to be marked by a pole just outside the forest, although looking from a distance the true top may be just inside the plantation. Followed this up by climbing Sorrell Hill, then back along forest tracks and quiet roads to the start. Linkback:

I parked at the entrance to the forest track at O055 138 B, and gained the summit after a brisk 45 minute walk to the top. I followed forest tracks most of the way, breaking out onto open ground at the felled section near the saddle between Sorrel Hill and Ballynatona. Note that sheet 56 isn't 100% accurate, as the track shown heading north towards the summit is partially blocked and almost grown over. Lovely views of the Mullaghcleevaun - Carrigvore group, as well as Seefn and Seefingan (where the summit tombs are visible on a clear day). Agree with Walter in that the stick beside the forest (not very visible in my pic) appears to mark the summit. Linkback:

nice views
by ablighe  27 Jun 2010
On a Saturday morn with nothing much on i decided as i was driving through the Sally Gap to take in a short walk. I parked at a forestry entrance O 045 148 C. I immediately left the short forest road and entered the forest, keeping the edge of the forest to my right within 100 metres at all times. Towards the top the forest gets very thick with sharp protruding branches sticking out everywhere. Shorts were not a good idea for this one. After a few detours and a climb over the forest fence i emerged at what seemed to be the top, marked by a stick next to a tree. Took 20 min to get up at a quick pace.
The views were pretty good as it was a clear day. Would not go out of your way for this one but if you happen to be in the area it is worth a walk. Linkback:

A Sunday Stroll
by eamonoc  21 Feb 2011
Sunday 20/2 /2011. Very wet and windy. Started at forest entrance O 045147 D, followed path for 1min, entered firebreak on right, continued to edge of wood climbed fence then went uphill with wood and fence on my left. Continued until fence veers to the right, there is a gap in the fence at a boggy area. Go through to the left. Summit is just a couple of metres from here. Linkback:

Mind your legs!
by Pepe  24 Aug 2015
Unfortunately the tree-felled area hasn't been well cleared. The remains of branches have grown brittle and sharp as the scars and scratches on my legs can attest to, so the moral of this comment is: beware if wearing shorts. Not an inspiring climb. If Mountainviews ever ranks the carns in order of members' preferences I imagine this one might end up near the bottom of the list. Linkback:
