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.

St. Patrick's Day 17th March 2008 - A great day forecast weatherwise so we decided to make the short trip from County Armagh to the Cooleys. What better than a 'stroll' up Slieve Foye?
We started from Carlingford carpark and headed along the Tain Way and then off the beaten track up the western side of Foye overlooking Carlingford, with its beautiful views over towards the Mournes. After negotiating the steep climb (slippery underfoot in places), zig zagging between outcrops of rock, we reached the summit. It was well worth the climb with its 360 degree panoramic views towards Dundalk, Newry, Warrenpoint, Rostrevor, Cranfield Point and the Irish Sea.
A reasonably strenuous challenge for our small group of relatively inexperienced walkers, aged between 9 and mid to late forties. The splendid weather and spectacular views combined to make it a day to remember! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/298/comment/3001/
