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.

She's a beauty! Climbed her last night. If you want to shake off those mid week cobwebs, there's plenty of daylight to get you up there by taking the Black Road and bypassing Galtybeg. We started at 7.45pm. Back to the car by 10.30pm. Easy Pace. Between now and summer solstice, there should be time to include Galtybeg also if you start around 7.30pm mark.

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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/811/

Galtymore was the last peak we climbed on a day walk from Sturrakeen, it was a hot day and we were thankful to locate the permanent spring on the east side as our water supplies had dwindled over the course of the day. Good climb and a good view. If you are coming back down to Glengarra woods then cross the streams before their confluence as the banks become very steep. Picture of the cairn attached.

As part of our ridge walk along the Galtees in March 2005 the cross on Galtymore told us, if we did'nt know already, that it was cold. Conditions were alpine and yet clear sunshine most of the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/1512/
