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 316th 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.

Something for everyone

Fast becoming my old reliable, I've seen Foye in all weathers and it never fails to lift the mood. If you're planning on climbing the mountain, be sure to also take in some of the ridge as the rock-strewn landscape offers so much to explore. Every walk or run on the mountain reveals something new.
