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.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Galtymore in area Galty Mountains, Ireland
 
simon3 on Galtymore, 2005

This photo shows the cliffs above Lough Curra, with Galtymore on the skyline. Claude Wall [Mountaineering in Ireland] described the cliffs as “vegetated and unpromising”, however it was that very vegetation which interested the botanist R Lloyd Praeger. He said “A number of alpine species cling to the cliffs, but they are of the more widespread kinds. The best plant of the hills is Saxifraga spathularis …” Just in case you see one of these plants I gather it has thick green leaves and sports impressive 5-petalled pink flowers on longish red stalks.

On another note the picture also illustrates a safety issue with a lot of the Galtees. Left in this picture is towards the north. Don’t assume that you can leave the main ridge towards the north just anywhere. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/534/
