(Continued from Foxes Rock) There were noticeably fewer walkers on Ravens Rock. The peak lived up to its name, as a raven croaked and circled overhead shortly after I left the summit. The name of the hill is related to the nearby townland of Spellickanee (from Ir. Speilg an Fhiaigh, 'rock of the raven'). Another interesting name is the Split Rock. I think I may have found the rock in question (see photo) at the end of the ridge just NW of Eagles Rock. From a distance it looks as though it is split by the hand of nature. Then, as you approach, the weird line of the split gives the impression that it must have been caused by human action. And when you come right up close, you see that it is not really a split at all, but rather a seam consisting of a different type of rock. Eagles Rock, unsurprisingly, did not live up to its name!
