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.

Well seeing as I was driving from cork to Kildare and needed to burn off the few thousand calories I ate the night before, I decided to give Galtymore a go from the Mitchelstown side.
I started from the car park that is 3km off the N8 and with 2 bottles of water, a flask of hot tea , a chicken wrap and a bag of Meanies. All of which are obvious survival items. Especially the meanies.
I followed the dirt road for about 20 minutes (close the gate), until it branched left and right.
I went left which meant going down into the valley and back up towards galtybeg through some very steep boggy ground which prevented it being the easy dawdle I thought it would be.
All in all the weather was very clear and the views fantastic. I meant a friendly chap near the top who let me know that beyond the summit was another lake worth seeing.
The ground was very muddy on a lot of it and three cheers for the lunatics that left bike tracks near the edge of the cliff.
I took the easiest route down to the car park which involved heading towards galtybeg and then going right towards the dirt road. It could be a great climb for a beginner in good weather. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/1957/
