New Comment: Ravens soar above the rock, the mountains name checks out!
by PinkyFloyd  3 Sep 2018
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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/594/comment/20052/
