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.

A fairly easy day's walk that can be attempted in the short days of winter. Park at the car park to the west of Clonachullion Hill (at 311 314 B) and follow the Trassey Track as far as the right turn at 319 292 C. Head for Pollaphuca and the col between Slieve Bearnagh and Slieve Meelmore where you'll hit the Mourne Wall. Follow the right-most branch of the wall up to Slieve Meelmore (this is listed as 704m on the OS map, not 680 as recorded here!). Once you've gained the summit, savour the views before following the wall south again to the intersection with the main Mourne Wall at 305 285 D. Follow the westward spur to the track above the river, and then follow the Ulster Way back to the car park. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/361/
