This peak gives its name to the townland of Spellickanee. However, it is located in Glenmore townland, while Spellickanee is a little to the south. The first element is speilic, 'a splintery rock', probably ultimately derived from Latin spelunca, ‘cave, den’.   The Ravens Rock is the 711th highest place in Ireland.

Ravens soar above the rock, the mountains name checks out!

Visited The Ravens Rock as part of a wider hike that included Slieve Foye. It had been an incredibly cloudy day with low visibility but as we approached the rock, the skies magically cleared giving us fantastic views. 2 Ravens could clearly be seen (and heard) flying overhead and they are what made the visit extra special. Do take the time to visit if you are hiking the ridge on Slieve Foye, it's well worth it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/594/comment/20052/
