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 902nd highest place in Ireland.

A top that should be left to peak baggers
by Harry Goodman  14 Jul 2012
I climbed this hill on 29 March 2012 parking at the forest entrance O 0439714743 E. I followed the track for about 100m to where it turned sharply left and turned off it to the right to follow along a cleared area between the trees to the boundary fence where I turned left uphill through the trees. As this is a mature forest progress was quite straightforward up to a point just beyond a small clearing, near some large rocks, where the trees became smaller and more dense making the way forward much more difficult. I therefore crossed the fence O 0468414051 F on to open ground and followed this up along the forest edge. Initially I climbed over some large rocks and then over heather, peat and stoney ground to another fence. Once across I followed the forest edge a short way to the top marked by a stout post atop a small raised stone ditch or cairn (see photo). While the view N was blocked by the trees there were views E to the high Dublin/Wicklow tops including Kippure Dublin's highest point. I returned by way of ascent except I did not re-enter the forest but continued down over the open ground to the road.. Although I had to cross a number of fences lower down this was greatly facilitated by stones to help the step overs. At first sight I had consided using this line for my ascent and not go into the forest but, viewed from the road the way ahead appeared to be blocked by thick yellow clumps of prickly whin bushes and I therefore changed my mind. In effect these were not a problem on the descent and a climb up from the road along the forest edge would have been quite feasible. In all a walk of 1.7k easily coverd in under an hour. In all honesty this is a hill for peak baggers and has little else to commend it especially as it has nearby the much more accessible, higher and finer viewing platform of Sorrell Hill. In my case it was the second of three isolated tops being sought out on that day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/791/comment/14717/
