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 second most easterly summit in the Cooley/Gullion area. Slieve Foye is the highest point in county Louth.

Four of us climbed Slieve Foye on 29th September 06. It was a rewarding and challanging walk , very enjoyable. Two points however, climbers may wish to note. Firstly, the start of the walk as indicated on the tourist office map(downloadable) is confusing. We found ourselves going too far south on the Tain Trail and had to cut across fields to get back on track! We had both the Discovery OS map and a gps with the route planned in it and we still had a problem with the starting point! So be careful of that. Also the decent from Eagles Rock down to the car park is treacherous at the moment / there has been so much rain. The rain caused a slime on the grass which makes it extreemly slippery. One stick is essential( if not two,) to negotiate it without continually falling on your Aras! Having said that , the rewards in terms of the view are worth the effort.
