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 141st highest place in Ireland.

A view of the tower which is decribed above and accounts for the discrepancy some people have previously indicated with the spot height for this peak. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/1212/
