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.

Trip report part 2
by eflanaga  8 Aug 2012
Climbed June 7th – From top of Croaghnageer (see for first part of walk) I took a bearing of 309 degrees NW dropping down the fairly short distance on to upper part of river valley between them. Here the terrain was much firmer and after crossing the river (stream) I made my way towards the obvious swathe of green running down from a breach in the ridge of Croaghaniwore. About twenty metres up this ‘track’ I veered left and scaled the eastern side of the mountain in a zig-zag fashion (I was beginning to feel the weight of my pack).Normally, the climb to the top should not pose any great difficulty. Once again the views from the top are excellent, enhanced as they were on this occasion by the beautiful evening sunshine. The wind turbines over in the direction of Barnesmore reflected brightly in the sunshine, and like its near neighbour provided stunning vies into the main Bluestacks across the valley. Indeed, all around the countryside was looking at its best. From here I turned towards Croaghbarnes dropping down fairly steeply through mixture of rocky and long tussock grass eventually flattening out onto the saddle dividing the Corabber (SW) & Cronamuck (NE) River valleys, before climbing up onto Croaghbarnes. Here I found a suitable camping site about 150m short of the top. I set camp and retired early determined to get an early start the following morning.
