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.

Climbed Galtymore on Sat 24/03/12 as it was a crackingly good day, if a bit hazy. Began from the Clydagh river car park on the Aherlow side & headed straight up the tarred road for maybe 2km before going through some farm gates & on to the mountain slopes. Decided against Cush as time was a bit against us (it was 12 noon) & headed straight up to the saddle between Cush & Galtybeg. At the top there we looped around to the east following the small path overlooking Lough Muskery & then turned west directly into the hard slog up Galtybeg. The beeze below seemd to turn into a howling gale by now but luckily it was to our back & gave some assistance. Pretty dry conditions underfoot after the recent dry weather but still 1 or 2 big-jumps had to be made. Continued on from there to the slopes of Galtymore but again, the wind was slightly with us which helped but certainly wary of going too close to the edge. At the top we were a bit above the haze so got good views of the Comeragh/Knockmealdown mountains but unfortunately no views of Cork/Kerry mountains or even to Limerick. Followed the wall then to the angle where it continues west but from there we aimed for the distant cairn & downwards. Descent was relatively easy as the heather & ground was dry & back to the forest track below in maybe 1.5hrs from the summit of Galtymore, including stopping. All in all made it back to the car in just under 5hrs. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/6734/
