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.

Galtymore: the traditional way
by Luimni  2 Jun 2010
Just a reply, if I can to Colin Murphy below. I find no problem with trainers and hoodies hillwalking. Hoodies are great as you can pop them up and down instead of carrying a hat. Trainers I find are great for scrambling as they give a spring in my step. I found it very handy tip toeing and jumping to avoid boggy patches and up those boggy ledges. I am reasonably inexperienced with hill walking but I found no problem going up places like Galtymore, Croagh Patrick, Keeper hill etc in jeans, trainers & a hoodie. Hoping to go up Carrauntoohil the same way in a few weeks. Anyway, Galtymore is a nice climb at the top where it can get steep but overall a nice walk. We parked in the little car park after taking the signposted turn off the Mitchelstown/Cahir road. A nice brisk walk following the stone path to where the path ends. We then stayed to the left of Galtybeg and walked across the lower slopes of Galtybeg itself, which avoided the bog below. We then came across the 2 bog 'Ledges' and carefully down one and up the other ledge to reach the Col. Had a nice rest before we went up to the summit of Galtymore. Tough enough from the Col to the summit but enjoyable. Lovely clear day and little wind which was nice. Coming down we took a bee line down the hill straight towards the stone path which took us into the valley which was much drier than the boggy area to our surprise but just watch your footing as there are many hidden holes. Back up to the path and home free. Very enjoyable climb. (sorry about the lack of technical terms and directions) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/3062/
