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.

Look north from Youghal or Ardmore and some 10km away on a low wooded rise you can see this summit. It is instantly recognisable by the substantial accumulation of masts on its top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/956/comment/17797/
