It might seem surprising that two major peaks get their name from trees normally found at valley level. However, the tree in question may well be the wych elm, which is the only native Irish elm. It tolerates quite rocky soil and grows in upland areas, particularly in the NW. Even so, the name probably referred to a place on the lower slopes of the range.   An Leamhaigh Mhór is the second highest mountain in the Bluestack Mountains area and the 159th highest in Ireland.

A Good Viewpoint, Even On Lower Slopes
by Aidy  7 Nov 2016
Having bagged Lavagh More before, I found myself just skirting the summit on a couple of occasions, instead crossing its eastern shoulder on my way to Croaghgorm and its minor tops. Even lower down on its slopes however, it offered some great views along the Reelan Valley and across to the line of lower peaks from Croaghubbrid to Croveenananta.
