A substantial tower has been built on the summit. The spot height is given as 704m on the 1:25,000 map, but this does not square with the contours, which only go up to 680m. Spellack (speilic, ' a splintery rock') is a spur on Slieve Meelmore.   Slieve Meelmore is the 142nd highest summit in Ireland.

Previous contributor CSD calls this a fairly easy days walk......... if you are of a comparitive fitness level to Paula Radcliff then perhaps yes it is - if like me you're not quite olympian standard then this mountain can provide a good test of your fitness and stamina. It won't take you long, today I made the summit from Meelmore Lodge carpark in just under the hour - going the long way round (anticlockwise) following the ulster way and returning by pollaphuca, but you'll need a little extra effort and a few extra deep breaths along the way. The problem is the underfoot conditions. From Pollaphuca it's very rocky and uneven and from the ulster way, although all maps indicate a path high up the valley side, it is more accurate described as river bed! The sheer amount of exposed rock is however a good indicator as to this hills previous life, and following this "riverbed " leads to a wonderful example of the type of stone masons shelters in the Mourne area (pic) at roughly 550m (J302285 A), and, baring in mind how tired my feet were at this point from trudging along the valley, all due respect goes to the men who once spent their working days here - their little personal quarry is evident right besifde the shelter - with the precision cut stone still lying around it's as if work had just ended for the weekend.
