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.

Fog on the Galties
by Asho-and-Dave  29 Jul 2011
Climbed Galty More and Galty Beag this morning for the first time with my Dad. We began at 8am. It was very foggy, we could not see more than a few metres ahead. When we left the path we thought we were heading in the direction of Galty More but ended up on top of Galty Beag. It was a steep climb up. When we realised we were on Galty Beag we followed a path to Galty More. We could not see Galty More until we reached the bottom of the mountain. We took the east way up to the summit. On are right it looked like a sheer drop in the fog. Made it to the top. Not much of a view in the fog. But when we were going to leave the sun came out above us and cleared a patch of fog in the shape of a square. It looked like a window. In it we could see an amazing view. It was quite spectacular but then the fog covered it again. On the way down we climbed Galty Beag again. Had a great time.

If it is a foggy day remember
1. a compass
2. a rain jacket
3. torch
4. a warm drink
5.a phone
6. REMEMBER TO MARK THE WAY YOU CAME WITH STONES AND DIFFRENT SIMBLES BECAUSE IF IT FOGGY YOU COULD GET LOST!!! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/14/comment/6443/
