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 Magnificant Mountain. The spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, mountains and the Galty's own splendour just grand. Approached from the cork side after parking in the small carpark provided. Climbed with a friend who showed me the way. To begin the track is rough, stones and ruts. The ascent has some boggy terrain so the 'stick' came in handy to prevent watery disasters to my boots. The summit is quite steep and I needed the stick again. A rock provided much welcome shelter from a howler of a shower which had nearly horizontal rain. Delighted to munch the lunch while visbility was only twenty yards or so. There are spectacular cliff views and I approached the edge with great care due to gusty winds to take a photo or two. The song 'the Galtee Mountain Boy' has new meaning now. We met seven other walkers on our travels. Will do this proud mountain again hopefully of a drier, sunnier day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/3986/
