Enjoyable day out in the clouds with my brother and nephew! Quite cold on the summit and visibility was limited so we didn't hang about & kept moving after a couple of quick photos! Felt good to get this summit achieved after passing by the Galtees numerous times in my younger years!Gerry the Ranger01/12/2019
From Glengarra, following trails in forest, continuing up to the col N of Knockeenaloung, tracks to col between Galtymore and Galtybeg, then ascending Galtymore, returning same way. Not a route I'd recommend - a lot of ground without paths between forest edge and first col.kdbennett02/08/2019
From The Black Road CP. Leaders of a half marathon came out of the side track just ahead of me from King's Yard. Spoke to some runners on the steeper sections. At the top in 1h 15m. Cloud came down just before reaching the top. Back markers asking me where the others went. The squall cleared 5 mins after I started my return. Then all fine and clear! Back at the car in 1 hour where Karen and Lauren were waiting and drove to Belfast.ChrisR20/07/2019

From Clydagh Bridge via Slievecushnabinnia(qv for details), starting out on the Loch Curra walk. Increasingly gloomy weather so done on a compass bearing. The cloud just lifted off Galtymore so I returned via Galtybeag(qv)- the return in fine weather. I drove to Glenmalure after the walk- Galtymore had to be done today to keep alive my plan to compleat the Irish 'Munros' this holiday.pwheeler27/05/2011
Walked up from Mitchellstown road climbed Galtybeg first. Misty with sun tantalisingly trying to get through. Cleared as soon as we descended. Fantastic location with Knockmealdown and Comeragh Mountains close bynickywood101/05/2010

A bad day. From road above Skeheenaranky. On bridal track to open moor into mist 50m vis. On compass over tussock and swamp to hags in the col and 700' up to top. 12.50. On return, Sadie had a severe spasm and died later. In great distress we carried her to car - about 1 1/2 miles. Poisoned bait used on the hills, but supposedly not within 200 yds of public footpath, with notices saying land poisoned and removal of poison in hours of daylight. None of this was done. Vet confirmed that Sadie had body of 5 year old ( she was 10 )and had been poisoned by strychnine. Stomach was almost empty but contained a sheep's liver with strychnine. Police were uninterested.arranc11/04/1991

Farm above Glen of Aherlow (To the north of Galtymore) - Lough Dineen - Galtymore. Lane to farm starts about 20m to the east of Clydagh Bridge. (PM)gerrybowes21/07/1987
Solo. From a point near Ballygeana. I walked up N ridge (slightly to west of Lough Curra) to Galtymore Mountain (3016'). I was not absolutely sure of my position until well up the mountainside from the start since the summit is not visible from the starting point. It was difficult to determine the starting point precisely due to the large number of farm tracks not marked on the map. There are two high points, each with a fairly large stone cairn. It is difficult to say which is highest although eastern one has a cross below it and a separate wooden post on it. Frost crystals 2 feet long on cross (horizontal). It was a clear day but very cold with a biting wind. There was frost at all levels. There were a few small snow patches on the highest parts.pwbellarby28/01/1987
