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 317th 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.

Traverse of the Cooley Mountains
For those wishing to do this superb traverse, as outline by ahendroff, but with out access to two cars, read on! I travelled to Newry by Ulsterbus from Belfast, took a taxi ride from Newry Bus Station, (the taxi depot is just opposite the station) to the start point of ahendroff's walk (Point A). The Taxi driver was quite happy to drive his taxi up the winding minor roads for a fare of £6. I left Newry at 10:00 am and finished the traverse with around only 10 minutes to spare & no time for a pint before the 17:10 bus (this is the last bus for Newry on Saturdays) left Carlingford for Newry and my onward connection to Belfast. But with good connections with Belfast & Dublin, an earlier start than mine is easily achieved, and a leisurely pint can be supped before your departure home. Here are the web links to the Bus company's timetables, www.buseireann.ie/pdf/12 0 248 21 56-161.pdf www.translink.co.uk/ . And while you sup your pint, you can feel extra smug at a superb hill traverse, your use of public transport and the low carbon footprint for the days travels. I think that you may feel you deserve a second pint for that and why not! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/298/comment/3363/
