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.

Many klicks south is Port Oriel in Louth where this dancing starfish symbolically connects the summit to its neighbouring seascapes.

A nice light touch of a sculpture don't you agree? Well it certainly isn't light in weight being two tonnes of solid cast iron, two metres high. The sculptor is Rachel Joynt. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/298/comment/4463/
