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.

Handy walking
by paulocon  3 Aug 2010
Started from King's Yard taking in Monabrack, Lyracappul, Carrignabinnia, Slievecushnabinnia and finally Galtymore. A nice circuit that is quite easy-going after the bulk of the height has been gained on the climb up to Monabrack. The cairn positioned a short walk away from the cross on Galtymore marks the summit proper and the highest point in counties Tipp and Limerick. Descended back to the yard. Nice to be able to leave your car in a safe place and the shower/toilet facilities are very useful as well. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/5982/
