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.

Buddha on a trig
by jackill  1 Aug 2017
I've seen many strange things on the hills over the years from naked sunbathers in the galtys, being mooned by a hillwalking club in the Knockmealdowns to a Landrover on top of the Comeraghs near Coumfea. I must be finally losing my mind though because last Thursday I saw Buddha on top of the trig pillar on Galtymore. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/19618/
