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.

I hiked up Meelbeg with my dad on Saturday (10/2/2007). Walking up the track, we were surprised by how deep the snow was, (up to a foot just on the track). But nothing prepared us for the shock we got once we reached the wall. The snow had drifted and was the same height as the wall, and in some places completely covered it. The wall at this stage was over 6 foot tall! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/103/comment/2618/
