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.

deswalk on Galtymore, 2009
by deswalk  5 Mar 2009
This was taken on 21 February 2009 and almost exactly thirty years since I first climbed Galtymore. That time was in heavy rain and cloud on compass bearings only. This time was with my niece on her first ever climb of any mountain. I think she enjoyed it despite a gale of wind ensuring we made use of every spare layer of clothing during our celebratory lunch stop! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/3620/
