Carronadavderg is the highest point in the Drum Hills (Ir. Drom Fhinín [LL]). Canon Power says of this height: This carn is erroneously marked as Sliabh Grainn on old maps. A remarkable eminence visible for many miles in three directions. A wild legend accounts for the name. Fionn and a contemporary giant had a difference as to the ownership of a certain red bull. In the heat of the dispute the rival proprietors seized each a horn of the beast and pulled the creature in twain.   Carronadavderg is the 1154th highest place in Ireland. Carronadavderg is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Comeragh Mountains area.

Keep the gorse short
by eamonoc  23 Aug 2013
Tues 20/8/2013, Left Dungarvan on N25 heading towards Youghal, this road rises for about 8km at the high point of this climb, I turned right at a sign for Clashmore and followed this road for approx 10km to arrive at point A as mentioned by Wicklore. There is a new bungalow with an imitation round tower in its garden just after the access road. It took me 15mins to the top with all the fine masts hereabouts. If this top was not kept clear for the masts, it might prove difficult to reach as it is completely surrounded by mature wood land and some innocent looking small Gorse bushes around the trig point.
