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.

Ireland's highest inland mountain.

This route starts from the car park near the Clydagh Bridge at R874431 A 27787 at the North side of the range. The route starts by heading South through some forest trails before heading out onto the mountains at R87340 25826 B for a steep climb up Slievcushnabinnia. From here it's a more gentle climb heading South East to Galtymore with lovely views of Lough Curra the keep the mind occupied.
As we were in a large group and some were out for their first hike and were feeling the burn, we returned they way we came.

However I believe a nice way to complete this route would be to descend East off Galtymore and ascend Galtybeg before another descent to the col between Galtybeg and Cush. From here depending on energy levels you can take in Cush or drop back down to the forest trails. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/20135/
