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 151st highest in Ireland.

A Good Viewpoint, Even On Lower Slopes
by Aidy  7 Nov 2016
Having bagged Lavagh More before, I found myself just skirting the summit on a couple of occasions, instead crossing its eastern shoulder on my way to Croaghgorm and its minor tops. Even lower down on its slopes however, it offered some great views along the Reelan Valley and across to the line of lower peaks from Croaghubbrid to Croveenananta.
