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.

Having recenty read the excellent 'Feet in the clouds' by Richard Askwith, I was inspired to throw on a pair of shorts and runners and try my hand at the discipline of Fell Running. We decided to tackle Foye from the South-West for a change and it proved to be a good choice as a lovely carpet of grass forms the section of the Tain Way which takes you from the road up to Golwyn Pass, the shoulder between Foye and Barnavave. On the shoulder, you leave the Tain Way and head for the summit of Foye. The last part of the climb is wet and boggy in places so the run turned more into a walk. A dense fog hid the true summit of the mountain until we were nearly upon it and totally obscured the normally excellent views from the trig point upon the large rock formation at the summit of Louth's County High Point. We finished off by ascending back to the Golyn pass and jogging across to the summit of Barnavave and were rewarded with a break in the clouds giving the ever-breathtaking view across Carlingford Lough to the Mourne Mountains. Excellent walk/run to shake off the cobwebs! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/298/comment/4361/
