Little Sugar Loaf Hill Giolspar A name in Irish

This hill is also known as Giltspur Mountain [PNCW], of which the Irish version Giolspar is a transliteration. The name Giltspur, which originally refers to a townland on the northern slopes, is explained by a transaction in the late 12th century, whereby Dermod MacGiollamocholmog granted one carucate of land in Kilruddery to Richard de Felda for a pair of gilt spurs, to be presented to him and his heirs each year at Michelmas [PNCW]. Giltspur Mountain is thus a rare example of an English language name which is so old that it has been replaced by another, Little Sugar Loaf.   Little Sugar Loaf is the 1066th highest place in Ireland.

Took a quick sortie up this little hill just recently after a break of over a year. Used to climb it every second day when I lived close by. A super slope for a work routine-steep and short and aesthetically quite nice. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/909/comment/14886/
