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.

Great weather and great views on the day we went up Meelmore. Heading up the Trassey track we then forked off to the SW towards the col between Meelmore and Bearnagh before heading up along right hand section the wall towards the top of Meelmore. You'll be greeted with a small stone shelter at the summit along with amazing views of the surrounding mountains and countryside. The quickest way back is to jump over the wall at the shelter and head down the NE side of the mountain which gets steep as you get further along so watch out. Once you make it down the steep section then you can head back down the valley before crossing the river and heading back down the trassey track.
