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.

From Carlingford car park the route to Slieve Foye is well marked. Follow the Green (Commons Loop) to its apex and instead of turning south at J17980 11185 B take the Blue walk to the next outcrop and join the Red Route at J17901 11441 C. This leads to the top of the Golyin Pass J17476 10650 D where you choose to head north to Slieve Foye, West on the Tain Trail or South to Barnavave J17737 10162 E 350m. We took the easy option this time and crossed Barnavave to loop back to Carlingford on a well marked Red trail. The entire trip was 5.8k with great views of Carlingford Lough, Cooleys and Mournes. There are some historic sites on the descent and a Dominican Priory dating back to 1305 as you enter the village. Don't pass the Food for Thought deli/ restaurant. Thanks to the tourist office for good advice. For next time can anyone advise on the descent from Eagle Rock to Forest Trail back to car park?
