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.   An Leamhaigh Mhór is the second highest mountain in the Bluestack Mountains area and the 156th highest in Ireland.

Fine summit in the heart of the wilds
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  26 Nov 2013
This approach is from SW and forms part of a looped walk including Binnasruel, Lavagh More, Lavagh Beg and Silver Hill. Park at G 896 885 A (Point A), beside and abandoned cottage, where there is room for a couple of cars. Climb over fence and proceed north up a gently rising slope turning NE at point G898 890 B (Point B) after a few hundred metres where the slope become increasingly steeper. Continue in this direction for approx 2 km to reach Binnasruel, then continue NE for another 2km, passing between a number of small loughs in the col around point G 924 903 C. The climb is reasonably easy and the summit is is a broad rocky/grassy area, marked by a cairn. It will take you approx 2.5 hours to reach this Lavagh More from the car, Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/154/comment/4914/
