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.

Looking down over Dawsons Table from the summit of Galtymore.
In the distance to the right you can see Lyracappul and on the left Temple Hill with
Knockaterriff and Knockterrif beg below.
We started at Clydagh bridge at 1.30 (a bit late) and followed the forest track to the Galtymore stile. 800 mtrs climb straight up the north face(Product placement on Mountainviews!!) to the rocky outcrops at the summit then down by Slievecushnabinnia.
