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

Moac on Slieve Foye, 2010
by Moac  16 Mar 2010
The dog brought me for a walk on Sunday 14th March. I parked at the car park J16471 14032 A as Coillte have clearfelled a chunk of forest and closed off access to the higher carpark J16741 13730 B. I followed the pleasant track SE towards Carlingford until the end of the forest and then climbed Slive Foye fairly directly. I was taken aback to find a bright reflectorised marker at the summit! These markers littered the summit ridge. I have some adverse comments on these markers; drilling the rock to fix them is not 'leave no trace' compliant, they are very visible if travelling clockwise on the loop but not so if travelling counterclockwise - if somebody is relying on the markers and loses them in bad visibility they may be in serious trouble & the screws are already rusting (should have used brass). mcrtchly had a problem in descent - either head straight for upper carpark [C] or head for corner of forest J16405 13892 C and follow track down to lower carpark [B]. A track also contours from corner of forest [D] across to upper carpark [C] . Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/298/comment/4512/
