The highest hill on Rosguill. The Metrical Dindsenchas contains a reference to Sliab Guill, which the editor Edward Gwynn identifies with Rosguill, so it may be an old name for Ganiamore or may have referred to all the upland/rough pasture on Rosguill. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 142-43) for details of the festive assembly on Ganiamore.   Gáinne Mór is the 1377th highest place in Ireland.

Another Donegal Gem
by Aidy  6 Jul 2015
Donegal seems to have an endless supply of these little hills around its northern peninsulas offering amazing views for very little effort, none more so than this. I went up on Sunday while out driving, just to get out of the house. I had little hope of climbing anything due to torrential rain and ferocious lightning. I am cautious about lightning after getting caught out on another hill on very high, open ground. On this same weekend, I learned when I got home about fatalities in the Brecon Beacons in Wales, a tragic reminder of the dangers. I was rewarded for venturing out however, when in the afternoon, the weather cleared and the sun came out. Parking beside the singing pub on the eastern side of the hill, I took as direct a route as possible up the steep slopes, avoiding the small cliffs. The views around north Donegal have to be seen to be believed, with the whole panorama topped by alternating blue sunny, or black threatening skies. All this for only 20 minutes or so each way.
