Leac Chonaill also gives its name to the townlands of Derryleconnell Far and Derryleconnell Near.   Cruach Leac Chonaill is the 1245th highest place in Ireland.

Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  5 Nov 2012
Park at B8557807434 A on the R252, beside but not blocking an entrance track into an old quarry. Walk 200m E along the road to B857074 B. Turn right and follow waymarked posts across a patch of trackless peaty ground and then a rough track to B855066 C. Leave the track and go right (SW) up a long (1.7k) but gentle undulating slope to B8425906016 D on the N end of the summit ridge (obvious in clear conditions but an important checkpoint in mist). Turn left (S) and follow along the rocky ridge for 350m to the summit marked by a cairn and trig pillar.
Alternatively take the minor road SW off the R252 at B867065 E and at B863058 F follow a waymarked track NW to B855066 C. Leave the track and go left SW uphill as described above. In clear conditions the views from the top give a 360 degree sweep around NW past the Derryveagh/Glendowan Mts., then S to the Bluestacks and finishing along the Atlantic seaboard from Slievetooey to Aranmore Is. A short but very worthwhile walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/986/comment/5745/
