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.

Picture: Buddha on Galtymore Trig Pillar
 
Buddha
by Bunsen7  10 Jul 2017
We were surprised to see this Buddha sitting atop the trig pillar of Galtymore whilst completing the Cush horsehoe on 9 July 2017.

Someone had taken the trouble to trowel some mortar across the trig to hold it.

Difficult to not be hypocritical when a much vaunted cross sits close by, but the craftsmanship demonstrated was pretty poor - it looks very much like the common garden centre variety and is not sitting particularly level. The trowel was left behind as well to serve as further litter on the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/19595/
