Slieveboy (Irish: Sliabh Buí) is a mountain located in north County Wexford, Ireland.

Etymoogy[edit]

It is never called 'Slieveboy' by locals, but always its Irish form which is pronounced 'Shleeav Bwee'.

Geography[edit]

The mountain rises directly above the village of Askamore, midway between Carnew and Camolin. The mountain is, except for the area around the summit, completely covered in forest. There is a network of forest roads on the hill, and two communication masts on the summit.
