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.

Galtymore is a serious and big hill. It is especially nice to walk when snow capped. I've climbed it many times in all conditions and from all sides.It's eastern flank facing Galtybeg is starting to suffer from erosion. Try coming from the western side or up Knocknaganty . When visiting the Galtees do try to climb Lyracappul. This mountain affords perhaps the best views in all the Galtees. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/811/
