Oddly enough, despite the adjective beag ('small'), it is actually higher than Slieve Meelmore, so perhaps it is a question of bulk rather than height.   Slieve Meelbeg is the 111th highest place in Ireland.

Perfect Viewing Point For Slieve Meelmore
by Aidy  21 Oct 2016
Summit number 5 of the day, and there were amazing views in all directions. My next and final summit would be Slieve Meelmore, and there was a particularly good view of it from here, lit up by patch sunlight amongst the dark shadows. A stunning place to walk.
