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 1382th highest place in Ireland.

Up in the Downings!
by gerrym  28 Oct 2011
A strange wee hill for these parts as has quite alot of development around its edges and a maze of roads, making it difficult to find a suitable approach - at least until you know where you are.

Starting point is the carpark at the small church on the outskirts of Downings (109397 B). The approach has been well described by three5four0 and does not provide too much of a challenge! A fenceline, trip point, delapitated cairn and small communications mast mark the summit.

Fortunately the eyes are able to take in a broad sweep along the northern reaches of Donegal - Roguill, Hornhead, Malin, Dunaff Head and Inishowen. I was able to count 11 golden beaches. To the south views extend over Downings, where yachts where moving like jetskis in the strong breeze, to Muckish and her companions and to the distant Bluestacks. WOW would be a good word to describe it all!

A direct southerly descent brought some delight over steep broken ground back to the road and church. All done in 40 minutes and best done as part of a grand tour i think - over 2 days i was able to visit 5 of the lesser hills in these parts.
