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.

New Comment: The Summit -another day !
by Buny Clare  2 Jan 2018
Last Thursday 28/12/2017
I returned to the southern route for the first time in over ten years. In recent years I climbed Galtymore from Glen of Aherlow side…I parked my car about 2 km from Kings yard .We were aware we were going to be pushed for time as due to a number of reasons we did not commence our walk until almost miday .The snow fell as we walked via Kings Yard and not having read the article written by Jackill (24/7/2012) I was surprised to observe the new facilities available.. We passed the sheep pen at( R87 409 21077 )after seeing a direction sign about 50 metres before the pen.
.With visibility poor, it was snowing and almost 2 ins of snow on the ground I soon realised that this was not the route I was familiar with. As It was not a day to explore a new ascent we decided to retrace our steps and discovered a turn on our right which I soon recognised as the route (The Black road) I had previously taken many years ago…We made slow progress in the snow covering about 75 per cent of the walk to the Col between Galymore and Galtybeg. HERE WE MADE THE DECISION TO ABANDON OUR ATTEMPT TO CLIMB GALTYMORE, Time was now very much against us , it was still snowing , visilbility very poor and one of our party did not have suitable footwear. A reasonable decision seeing that we did not get back to our car until 15.45… Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/19824/
