The distant ridge, Slieve Foy, is the site of a mythic battle from the epic “The Cattle Raid of Cooley” (Irish: Táin Bó Cúailnge).

Pam and I did a circuit of the island, returning to the home of my Mom’s first cousin. Our last full day on Ireland a cousin took us on the Tain Trail, over Maeve’s Gap of Slieve Foy and into Carlingford town.

Our route is partly visible to the right of the ridge, hidden in low clouds.

  1. I was so taken by the title that I looked for the epic, and found this version with an English translation. After dipping into it here and there, I found myself wondering if the old expression “How now, brown cow?” might have been rooted there. Hard to say, but worth a few minutes to explore the issue.
