Bunmore West and East are townland names. However, William Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) shows 'Bonmore' also a hill-name. This is unusual in that Ir. bun, 'bottom, base' would not be expected in a hill-name. This may be due to confusion of bun with binn, 'peak'. Previously Bunmore West in MV. Has been called Ballycroy Hill.   Bunmore is the 1178th highest summit in Ireland.

As of April 2012, no-one has reported visiting Bunmore. Here at least is a picture of the summit which must have one of the best Mayo views available. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1007/comment/6783/
