The word béillic is used in West Cork and Kerry for a rock-shelter used by shepherds. This is often an overhanging rock or group of rocks which affords some cover from the elements. There is such a rock-shelter on the southern slopes of the mountain. The word may be a variant of speilg and sceilg, and all three may ultimately be derived from Latin spelunca, ‘cave’.
Béillic is the 452nd highest place in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1453/
