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 1375th highest place in Ireland.

Ganiamore is also known locally to have been a mass rock from back when the english outlawed Catholocism. As you can see when you climb to the top it is a panoramic view for miles around. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1033/comment/6226/
