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 summit in Ireland.

Bleck Cra on Slievemoughanmore, 2006
by Bleck Cra  16 May 2006
The more spontaneous of us will come at Slievemoughanmore as the crow flies - ex the Rocky River track from the Rocky River Bridge and find her at 559m, small and undemanding. The rest of us will more than not, encounter her after a run of anything from one (Pigeon Rock) to three (Hen, Cock, Pigeon -or- Rocky, Tornamrock, Eagle) tops, when she becomes a brief but tough old haul to her lonely and desolate summit. Unlike the Eastern Mournes where summits are defined by a kink in the wall, a trig point or some other obstacle enroute (excepting Commedagh), most of the cairns in the Shanlieve Group require a short, if albeit disorienting deviation from your main route - Batts Wall Slievemoughanmore is no exception. From here it is but a short lep to the matriach/s of the clann, Eagle-come-Shanlieve effectively two tops of the same hill - and if you would forego the classic horseshoe configuration, thereafter south along the truly Great Gully. If you want a more diverting and odder experience, head North straight off her, into the void. I think it was Chris Bonnington once questioned by a tabloid interviewer if he believed sightings of Abominable Snowman genuine, replied that in continuous exposure to such emptiness, AS was the least you would “sight”. The confluence of the Rocky and Rowan Tree rivers framing Slievemoughanmore presents one such emptiness and it is awesome. The ribs of recently deceased turf-digging corrugate the landscape and expose the skeletons of broken bog oak. Nothing with living branches exceeds an inch above the ground. And it seems to go on forever. The tors of Hen in the distance add to this moonscape tableau and threaten like ancient guardians of the glen. Watch they don’t get you on the way home.
