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.

Last Mon 9th of Feb I summited on Galty Mór for the 463rd time. It was an overcast day but visibility was good lower down. I climbed from the black road route. The going was slow over the first mile or so as the snow had melted and frozen again, making footing precarious. Along the slope from the turf banks to the summit the snow was hard frozen making the ascent somewhat easier. I have approached the peak from all sides and routes, even attempted a climb from Lough Dineen in the late 70's.
I made my first attempt on this peak in Oct 1976. The leader said four as he touched the cross, I said one and have been counting since. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/3588/
