This is a linear walk that started from the Deserted Village, which is south of Carlingford and east of Barnavave.
We puzzled over this feature in a wall in the village.
Beyond there was the ascent to Barnavave or at least one part of that summit. The weather on Slieve Foye had pretty extreme wind from the east, mist but no actual rain.
We measured the height of the "key col" of Slieve Foye NW top. It turned out to be at 531.16m, and subtracting that from the height of Slieve Foye NW at 548.06 gave the latter a prominence of 16.9, confirming this bump as an Arderin Beg. On then Eagles Rock (prominence established at 32.39, confirming it as an Arderin) and on to the interesting oasis of the White Bog with its three lakes.
We then went on to the Long Woman's Grave and then to Lumpers.
