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 318th 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.

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
by paulocon  8 Oct 2011
A gloopy mist with the consistency of treacle, a wind to get Beaufort more than a bit worried, wild horses bemused by the shadowy figures jogging out of the clouds, trail runners and a right good soaking. All this and still Foye was magnificent. It's a mountain that just keeps giving regardless of the conditions. The highpoint of Louth in more ways than one!
