Located in Meenacurrin townland. Slievetooey is on the north side of the peninsula, while Slieve League is on the south. The cliffs and stacks along Slievetooey‟s seaward side form one of the most spectacular stretches of coastal scenery in Ireland. The highest point at 511m is actually unnamed on the Discovery map, while the name is positioned on a lower peak (472m). There have been various interpretations of the second element in this name. O'Neill mentions tuagh, an axe or hook, and tuathach, a lord or ruler of a tuath. Patrick McKay takes it to mean ‘northern mountain’, which fits with the location. Located in Meenacurrin townland. Slievetooey is on the north side of the peninsula, while Slieve League is on the south. The cliffs and stacks along Slievetoey’s seaward side form one of the most spectacular stretches of coastal scenery in Ireland. The highest point at 511m is actually unnamed on the Discovery map, while the name is positioned on a lower peak (472m). There are many possible interpretations of the specific element in this name. O'Neill mentions tuagh, an axe or hook, and tuathach, a lord or ruler of a tuath. If the early forms can be relied open, there appears to have been an article between the two elements, which would make north mountain rather unlikely. Previously Meenacurrin in MV. However, if the early forms can be relied open, there appears to have been an article between the two elements, which would make ‘northern mountain’ rather unlikely. It is more likely that we are dealing with an element tuadh/duadh, ultimately of Brittonic origin, meaning ‘strand’ or ‘beach’, which occurs more often in place-names of the north and north-west as “Dooey”. The Welsh equivalent is tywod, ‘sand’. The name refers to the extensive beach and sand-dunes at Maghery at the NE foot of the mountain, which is one of the easiest points for access to Slievetooey.   Sliabh Tuaidh is the third highest mountain in the Donegal SW area and the 528th highest in Ireland.

Saw four eagles swooping and diving near the summit. One came close enough to snap with the zoom. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/430/comment/18491/
