The summit of Galtymore is marked as Dawson's Table. Captain Dawson was a landowner in this area (Tipperary Directory 1889). Cf. Percy's Table on Lugnaquillia. The diarist Amhlaoibh Ó Súilleabháin (Humphrey O'Sullivan) recorded a different Irish name for the peak: Beann na nGaillti (Cinnlae Amhlaoibh Ó Súilleabháin, iv, 102). The names of three nearby places are derived from this: Glencoshnabinnia (PWJ, iii, 366), Slievecoshnabinnia and Carrignabinnia. The anglicised name Galtymore is recorded as early as the Civil Survey of Co. Tipperary (Down Survey, 1654-56), where it is mentioned (spelt exactly as today) as a boundary feature of the barony of Clanwilliam.   Galtymore is the highest mountain in the Galty Mountains area and the 14th highest in Ireland. Galtymore is the highest point in county Limerick and also the highest in Tipperary.

Climbed Sliebhcushnabinna on Sept 01 ,cloud descended ,no visisbility.
When we hit the stone cairns,thought that was the summit but it didn't seem to be.

Didn't find the wall either. Wasn't sure when to start heading left for Galtymore.
Had to abandon the effort and made it down to Lough curra for lunch Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/2814/

I go to the summit of Galtymore quite often ans I live in Galbally, Glen of Aherlow .
A great place to get information on Galtymore and the local area is from "The Glen of Aherlow Fáilte Society" - Web: www.aherlow.com, Tel: +353 (0)62 56331
This mountain is never the same as the light changes so do the colours. It is easiest to walk from the N8 side with good access fro a side road apox 5 miles south from Cahir. The picture was taken Decemder 2004. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/1629/
