RinavoreHillRoighne Mhór A name in Irish (Ir. Roighne Mhór [TR], 'big excellent portion')GalwayCounty, in Carn List, Conglomerate, sandstone, mudrock, tuff Bedrock
Height:426mOS 1:50k Mapsheet: 37Grid Reference: L91600 58500This summit has been logged as climbed by 7 members. Recently by: markwallace, chalky, maxim, taobear, Jamessheerin, eeimly, lakedistrictHW I have climbed this summit: NO (You need to be a logged-in member to change this.)
Tim Robinson suggests roighne is righin, 'tough or stubborn', (TR, 103) but it seems more likely that it is simply roighne, 'the best part', perhaps a praise-name for an old land division rather than the hill itself.
Roighne Mhór is the 814th highest summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/711/
