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.

Hi Tommy, I think you were looking into Lough Borheen as you were going up Galtybeg. As for your walk in the Glencush boreen to the farm O'Brian's, this was the "tourist" way in to do Galtymore for a long time. In the last number of years a lot of walkers like myself prefer to head up the Cush track and if you dont want to go over Cush just go along the side and it will bring you out to the coll between Cush and Galtybeg. The other way in is to follow the markers for the Galtymore stile through the wood. We have all become aware of not upsetting the locals in recent years, it has never been a problem in the Glen, but if we "walkers" can keep the traffic away from their homes etc we should oblige. I was on the Galtees and Galtymore twice this week and amazed at the number of people out and about. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/4502/
