An Fear Mór, 'the big man', occurs in a number of Irish place-names. It may refer to a giant or be a euphemism for the Devil. Cf. Crockanirmore, Crockanirvore and Oweyanirvore, all in Termmonmaguirk parish, Co. Tyrone; also Cuan an Fhir Mhóir, Greatman's Bay in Connemara, where the name is associated with the legend of a giant who fished for whales.   Croaghanirwore is the 424th highest place in Ireland.

Man, was this a tough one. The Blue Stacks tend towards rugged, but our approach from the south-west (from the track which leads most people to Lough Belshade) cannot be recommended. Endless false summits and a convoluted landscape that I did not discern on the map. And the midges didn't help. Probably better done as a longer walk from Barnesmore Gap.
