Highest point in Co Longford. We climbed this (with buggy) by walking up the access road to the telecom mast- highest point is a cairn just past it to the right. Lovely family excursion! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/3316/

Longford County Top
by mazamegaza  18 Feb 2016
We walked up to Corn Hill as part of our County Top Odyssey and afterwards drove over to Westmeath to walk up Mullaghmeen. Once we had found the grey metal gate on the service road to the mast at the top of corn hill, it took 9 minutes to dander up to the top. There is a trig and the trees obscure some of the view.
