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 158th highest in Ireland.

Climbed June 7th – Having dropped down from the summit of Ardnageer SW Top IG 96330 90487 F I made my way along the lower part of Croaghgorm’s northern flank, although did try to maintain some height as I traversed it in order to lessen climb onto saddle NE of Sruell Gap. Wonderful views north as I crossed towards Lavagh More over Croaghanard Lough into the northern part of the Reelan River valley, its beauty extolled by others below. Eventually dropped down onto col/saddle below the target mountain IG 93903 90398 G Picture does not do the height to be scaled on this SSE side of Lavagh More justice. The grass covered slope had quite a steep gradient and required hands on a few occasions for balance, yet surprisingly (for me) I managed to reach the lower part of the summit plateau in about 20 minutes. The top is quite broad and as described below the summit can be found with smallponds around it. The views from here were spectacular. The haze having lessened and the low lying cloud all but burned away by the increasing heat of the day allowed me clear views of the Derryveaghs with Snaght and, of course Errigal, prominent. To the south I could clearly make out the broad linear shape of Cuilcagh in the distance. Then it was ever onwards to Lavagh Beg the next summit in the circuit.
