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.

I approached Galtymore after having climbed Cush and Galtybeg. Lonely Planet’s Walking in Ireland suggests that if you want a great view keep to the north side of the col between Galtybeg and Galtymore, and if you want pleasant ground keep to the south side of the col. In reality you don’t have much of a choice. The North side is VERY boggy and soft, with plenty of peak hags, so you will have plenty of backtracking and wrong turns. I ended up cutting my losses and redirecting myself on to the more bearable south side from where I approached the summit. The summit is expansive and is marked by half a trig pillar and a cairn. Note that the celtic cross is not the summit. Although it was a brilliant day, I found the summit bitingly cold, remarkably so, considering I didn’t find it nearly as cold on the top of Galtybeg which isn’t all that much shorter. Anyway after this I made my way over to the lower western peak, which is also marked with a cairn. From here I made my way down to the stone wall, a remarkably well built structure up here at 800m, someone definitely earned their bread! The wall will guide you around to Slievecushnabinnia, the next step of the horseshoe. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/2099/
