This hill is also known as Giltspur Mountain [PNCW], of which the Irish version Giolspar is a transliteration. The name Giltspur, which originally refers to a townland on the northern slopes, is explained by a transaction in the late 12th century, whereby Dermod MacGiollamocholmog granted one carucate of land in Kilruddery to Richard de Felda for a pair of gilt spurs, to be presented to him and his heirs each year at Michelmas [PNCW]. Giltspur Mountain is thus a rare example of an English language name which is so old that it has been replaced by another, Little Sugar Loaf.
Little Sugar Loaf is the 1066th highest place in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/909/?PHPSESSID=jhn3pupv5fvchbd3sbqpi73rn1
