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.

The summit ridge of Slieve Foye is a collection of rocky outcrops and boggy dips, and around each corner is a breathtaking vista in all directions. The picture shows one of the many small ponds and rocky outcrops near the summit, with the view north to the Mournes visible through the gap.
