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.

Another Bluestacks fence
by jimgraham  14 May 2010
Noticed a farmer erecting a fence north to south over the east col to Lavagh More. He was out of earshot so I didn't get the chance to express the hope that a stile would be provided ! The only other fence over the ridge has a stile, so fingers crossed ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/154/comment/4727/
