The name "Maum" appears on the 6" map and on the Discovery map. However, according to logainm.ie, the name belongs to a pass situated to the west of this peak on the southern slopes of Slievetooey, and this seems to be a more appropriate place to be so named.   An Mám is the 1104th highest place in Ireland.

Maum from the South West
by noucamp  2 Sep 2020
Parking available at G 64147 88864 A near McMonigle Stoneworks.
The total hike trip of approx. 3 kms with 160m ascent should take around an hour.
Allow a little extra time to enjoy the views.
Don't stray too near the very steep ground to the North West. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1115/comment/20869/

Short Climb.
by sandman  29 Mar 2016
Parking beside Loch na Luchranan in a disused quarry at G6551788973 B will allow you a short climb to the heather covered summit with its fine views over Maghera Strand. The gravel track to the lough would not be suitable for low ground clearance vehicles. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1115/comment/18475/
