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 301st 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.

And so to complete our journey from Carlingford to Black Mountain and back and to climb Slieve Foye for the second time on our route. The photo taken at J 129 138 A shows the last leg of the trek where we headed from the southern side of the wood at Windy Gap along the lower slopes of The Ravens Rock and contoured on mountain tracks in a south eastern direction, crossing a very deep gullied mountain stream until at approx grid ref. J 162 120 B we headed directly for the summit which is shown top right in the photo. From there tremendous views opened up which due to cloud earlier in the day we were denied. We descended on the southern slopes from the summit and then followed the Tain Trail back to the village and the car. A great days walking in a great location.
