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.

What a day for December ! Well it is no accident - I use the following website for mountain weather in ireland. It has lots of detail including cloud base (m) and probability of precipitation (%) and more importantly it is very accurate. Try it out.....

Blue skies and lots of sun - I followed 'bogtrotter_ie' directions [see 1st Apr 2003] - thanks. The trip took 4.5 hours including about 20 mins of stops (distance = circa 14km).

Highlights were the views, the Southern side was in low cloud with neighbouring ranges peaking through the cloud base like something from Nepal - I could see the Knockmeadowns, Commeraghs and Slievenamon. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/2079/
