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 905th highest place in Ireland.

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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/791/comment/18267/
