An Fear Mór, 'the big man', occurs in a number of Irish place-names. It may refer to a giant or be a euphemism for the Devil. Cf. Crockanirmore, Crockanirvore and Oweyanirvore, all in Termmonmaguirk parish, Co. Tyrone; also Cuan an Fhir Mhóir, Greatman's Bay in Connemara, where the name is associated with the legend of a giant who fished for whales.   Croaghanirwore is the 425th highest summit in Ireland.

Hard Won But Well Worth It
by Aidy  27 Mar 2015
I have made a few attempts to get to Croaghanirwore, but have always been beaten back by bad weather on the occasions I've tried. I've always used the same route, starting at Barnes Gap on the N15, going up Browns Hill, and on to Croaghnageer. Croaghnageer was always as far as I'd got until this successful attempt when I started in gloomy conditions, but ended up in beautiful weather, although very cold. It felt exhilarating to be finally standing on the summit, at least partly because of its inaccessability. It is a long walk over difficult terrain, with no tracks or trails on the little walked summits which have to be crossed to get here. There are also some steep climbs on the way, particularly up Browns Hill and the northwest slopes of Croaghnageer. The reward is a real feeling of wilderness deep in the Bluestacks, with stunning views around the rest of the range, virtually all traces of civilisation hidden by the surrounding peaks. A manificent walk on this route - one of the best I've had, made all the better by being hard won. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/363/comment/17893/
