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.

Well worth the effort..
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  31 Mar 2015
On the E side of L. Eske G984843 A go NE steeply uphill. Where the tarred road ends, there is ample off road parking. Follow the farm track to L. Fad and around it's left side. When it peters out go down left (NW) to cross the Barnes River H003868 B. Continue up N through trackless long tussocky grass and hummocky ground.to H0008887826 C. At this point in the walk it is possible to take an out and back detour of 1.6km Croaghagranagh by crossing the river/stream, and going out and up WNW. Otherwise, continue up N past Illanmore Lough and then up a rugged slope to Pt. 534 H004889 D. The summit cairn lies NNW, across a shallow dip. Out and back is 8km with an additional 1.6km if the option of visiting Croaghagranagh is taken.There is a fine view point W to the main Bluestack's ridge above Lough Belshade. A route up can also be taken from the car park at the N end of L. Eske. Walk NE along the road to G969861 E and take a rough, narrow road N to Edergole. When the road/track ends continue up NE along side the Corabber River to cross it where it flows down from the left. Still going NE make for the head of the valley G997898 F , a broad and boggy area, before turning right to go steeply uphill to the summit. The route out and back is about 13km. This top along with six others can also be crossed in a strenuous linear walk from Barnes Gap to the R253 W of Commeen. 18 km and 1,600m of ascent.
