Locally known as An Leamhaigh Mhór. Given the ruggedness of the terrain and height of the mountain, a connection with (marsh-)mallows seems unlikely, and with elms even more so. The name is therefore somewhat puzzling.   Lavagh More is the second highest mountain in the Bluestack Mountains area and the 157th highest in Ireland.

I climbed this last Sunday on an absolutely cracking day with the sunning splitting the rocks. I turned off the R253 at G968964 E. Followed this road nearly to its end, took a left, crossed the Reelan, and turned left again. At the end I asked the landowner, who is a neighbour of my Uncle, could I park in his yard and then I set off. There are minor access difficulties getting from Mr. McAloon's farm onto the mountain beyond but it just requires patience and probing. Despite it being a Sunday afternoon I had the mountain all to myself with the exception of the blasted insect life. I have never seen the like of it! I never got a minutes peace as they buzzed into my eyes, ears, and hair, and I made a great meal for the gadflys. This is probably to do with the fact that, unlike most of the Bluestacks, Lavagh More and Lavagh Beg are fairly boggy, a great habitat for flys and things. Indeed the sheep were hanging around above 500m were the flys were less in number. From the base Lavagh More is rather dull looking compared to Lavagh Beg, which actually looks a bit higher, but the views from More's broad summit are unreal. Errigal is plain to see to the North, as is Ben Bulben to the south, and you also have a great panorama of Donegal Bay and the 'Rough Hills' of the Blue Stacks. After an hour lazing in splendid isolation on the summit (which has a small cairn to mark it) I descended down into the pleasant col to bag Lavagh Beg as well. I decided not to bother with Binnasruell. My Uncle, who grew up here, said the ground over to it is quite unpleasant Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/154/comment/1803/
