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.

St Patricks Weekend 2009;
Starting from the Mountain Lodge Youth hostel we traced Joss Lynam's route in 'Best Irish Walks' which follows the forest road for about 2km. From here you leave the road and head down towards the valley beneath Knockeenatoung where you cross the stream a couple of times. Bearing northwestwards, through the boggy terrain, you eventually pick up the Black Road and follow this to the end. From here you cross the base of Galtybeg and then up towards the summit of Galtymore. The views were fantastic, however it is very windy here and a lot of care is needed as the drop off to Lough Borheen is quite sharp. Taking this route from the youth hostel is about 14.5kms with an assent of 880m and an average walking time of 5.5hrs. I noticed a comment previously where someone said they walked this in runners and jeans ... I'd love to know if they were waterproof !! we had all our gear and this was the only thing that saved us from some very soggy socks !!! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/3650/
