Encyclopedia > Galtee Mountains

The Galtee Mountains are a mountain range in Munster, located in Ireland's Golden Vale across parts of counties Limerick, Tipperary and Cork. The area has a tradition of dairy farming, and the name "Galtee" is now synonymous with one of Ireland's largest food companies which began in the area. Mitchelstown, nestled on the Cork side of the mountains, is the main market town and centre of commerce for the region.
