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.

Yes! This is an exceptional mountain! The views in all directions are superb. Towards Newry; the south coast of the the Kingdom of Mourne; Carlingford almost directly below; Dundalk bay and the other Cooleys. A little masterpiece of binnianesque ups and downs.
