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', probably ultimately derived from Latin spelunca, ‘cave, den’) is a spur on Slieve Meelmore.   Slieve Meelmore is the 132nd highest place in Ireland.
