It is the element -moughan- which is obscure in this case. The name appears on 16th century maps as Slew Mogh or just Mogh.   Slievemoughanmore is the 394th highest place in Ireland.

There is high ground on all sides of this peak, except to the south-east where the land falls away towards the Irish Sea. In this direction, this view of two smaller hills appeared one December well up Slievemoughanmore on the route from Pigeon Rock Mountain. The mountain to the left, with a mast on it is Aughrim Hill, while on the right are the two summits of Knockchree. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/344/comment/1367/

On my trek Slivemoughanmore was but a stage on the way to Shanlieve. The typical Mournes wall gives a direct route albeit unrelentingly uphill as shown in the photo up Slivemoughanmore from Pigeon Rock Mountain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/344/comment/1979/

We followed the Wall from Pigeon Rock Mountain to Slievemoughanmore and it levels out at the 540 metre contour. In our case because of the wind direction we got more shelter by climbing on the southern side of the Wall. At the 540 metre contour we crossed over the Wall and the summit is 100 metres approx to the north. See the attached photo which was taken from the north in the valley as we headed to Cock Mountain.
