Locally the name is understood as Sliabh Fathaigh, 'mountain of the giant', and this ties in with local lore about a giant being discernible among the summit rocks [KM, personal comment]. Also called Carlingford Mountain.   Slieve Foye is the highest mountain in the Cooley/Gullion area and the 318th highest in Ireland. Slieve Foye is the most easterly summit and also the second most southerly in the Cooley/Gullion area. Slieve Foye is the highest point in county Louth.

Fantastic mountain, great views and access. I walked from Carlingford up to the car park via the trail, then went across the fence and straight up. Took about 2.5-3hours to get up, and about half that to get down. Views at the summit were great. It's true what they say about this mountain, it's Peak after Peak.. you think you're at the top, and up comes another almost vertical peak. There's parts of it you literally can't walk up without climbing gear (practically vertical rock), so we had to go around the mountain to try and find a way up.

We had a few showers too. Apparently there's a hillwalking trail up to near the summit, and then just a bit of climbing at the end, but I never knew about this, and maybe someone would care to shed a bit of light as to where on earth it is, as I would do it next time over the direct climb from the carpark, as it can be quite tiring after a while.

Enjoyed the trip! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/298/comment/1855/
