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 1278th highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1007/
