Located in Meenacurrin townland. Slievetooey is on the north side of the peninsula, while Slieve League is on the south. The cliffs and stacks along Slievetoey’s seaward side form one of the most spectacular stretches of coastal scenery in Ireland. The highest point at 511m is actually unnamed on the Discovery map, while the name is positioned on a lower peak (472m). There are many possible interpretations of the specific element in this name. O'Neill mentions tuagh, an axe or hook, and tuathach, a lord or ruler of a tuath. If the early forms can be relied open, there appears to have been an article between the two elements, which would make north mountain rather unlikely. Previously Meenacurrin in MV.   Sliabh Tuaidh is the third highest mountain in the Donegal SW area and the 494th highest in Ireland.

Saw four eagles swooping and diving near the summit. One came close enough to snap with the zoom. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/430/comment/18491/
