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.

Walked Galtymore for the first time from the Cork side last Sunday - previous climbs have been from the Tipp side. Started at the youth hoste, met the black road after about an hour and then hit the saddle between Galtybeg and Galtymore. Absence of rain in past few weeks very clear - the saddle was bone dry and is usually a swamp. The final pull up Galtymore was the usual slog but we hit the top in clear blue sky although the fact we ended up above the cloud later meant that the views into the Glen and south into Cork were pretty limited. Went back the same way - and God the descent off Galtymore down to the saddle is tough on the knees and put paid to plans to add Galtybeg to the walk. Still, a stunning mountain and worth the torment of getting to the top and back down! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/4160/
