The highest hill on Rosguill. The Metrical Dindsenchas contains a reference to Sliab Guill, which the editor Edward Gwynn identifies with Rosguill, so it may be an old name for Ganiamore or may have referred to all the upland/rough pasture on Rosguill. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 142-43) for details of the festive assembly on Ganiamore.
Gáinne Mór is the 1373th highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1033/
