Locally known as An Leamhaigh Mhór. Given the ruggedness of the terrain and height of the mountain, a connection with (marsh-)mallows seems unlikely, and with elms even more so. The name is therefore somewhat puzzling.
Lavagh More is the second highest mountain in the Bluestack Mountains area and the 157th highest in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/154/
