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 426th highest place in Ireland.

After the careful descent from Croaghnageer, ascend one of the grassy rakes, spotted on your descent, and then over more rocky ground to the summit. Which is a spot height in a kidney shaped contour ring, with a re-entrant descending from it, which provides a sheltered place for your lunch.
