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.

Our local CHP
by paddyobpc  25 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 28 Jul 2016. I had climbed Galtymore many times mostly using the Black Road route and even at age 6 Dillon(dillonkdy) climbed to the top with me. However for our County High point Challenge we needed a proper picture at both the Tipperary CHP and Limerick CHP. So on 28 July we set off from Clydagh Bridge on the Anglesboro side at around 2 Pm to walk a loop taking in both Galtymore and Galtybeg and back to the car. We had intended to include Cush but the weather put a stop to that. The views were clear and good at the start but mist moved in before we reached the top. We got the proper picture of Limerick's CHP (A cairn) and Tipperary's CHP (the trig) before heading over to Galtybeg and descending back to the car. Dillon(dillonkdy) had now visited 29 county high points!
With great spirit and determination Dillon(dillonkdy) walked with me to the top of Galtymore three more times in December, each time by the black road and each time reaching the summit before 9am. The extra climbs were worth 19 points each time for gribboneer-of-the-year http://www.highpointireland.com/gribboneer-of-the-year.html. The weather was outstanding for the walks especially the fact that it was December and so early in the morning. One of the mornings was frosty with a full moon giving way to a beautiful red sunrise just as we reached the top.
See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/18826/
