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.

Well, that is that done.

Parked at the Black Hill car park on the gap road and went up over Sorrell Hill and down to the pull up to Carrigleitrim. That was the straightforward part. Trying to find a way onto the open hillside and the obvious scar that is at the side of the trees is, to put it mildly, difficult. There are new deer fences topped with barbed wire and too high for this creaky middle aged git. Getting through the trees was bad enough and I was then confronted by a deep, marshy drainage ditch.. I got through both and found where to cross old fencing. I now had the boggy final pull to the top.
The top is, elusive, especially in hail and snow. Satisfied I had found it, I headed back down keeping to the east side, the forest side, of the fence. This was fine apart from the old coils of barbed wire. This combined with the mud made me feel like an extra in the film 1917.
Again, confronted by a fence, I turned left following a gloomy old forest ride. The fence became a substantial dry stane dyke and I eventually cut across to a forest road which took me to the gap road and the walk back to the car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/791/comment/20746/
