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 Mountains area and the 320th highest in Ireland. Slieve Foye is the second most easterly summit in the Cooley Mountains area. Slieve Foye is the highest point in county Louth.

The picturesque town of Carlingford provides a great starting point for this hike. There is a waymarked trail leading out onto the mountain and markers directing you to the summit. The smallest county in Ireland certainly has a special county high point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/298/comment/20190/
