It is the element -moughan- which is obscure in this case. The name appears on 16th century maps as Slew Mogh or just Mogh.   Slievemoughanmore is the 393rd highest place in Ireland.

We followed the Wall from Pigeon Rock Mountain to Slievemoughanmore and it levels out at the 540 metre contour. In our case because of the wind direction we got more shelter by climbing on the southern side of the Wall. At the 540 metre contour we crossed over the Wall and the summit is 100 metres approx to the north. See the attached photo which was taken from the north in the valley as we headed to Cock Mountain.
