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.

Stepping stones washed away
by Donard850  16 Feb 2013
The valley between Meelmore and Meelbeg is a popular approach from the carpark at the upper end of the Trassey Road. One approach is to take the left side of the valley and cross the stream via stepping stones and climb the steps to the stile. This crossing is also part of the route of the Ulster Way. Recent heavy rains have washed the stepping stones away leaving a deep pool. However, it is still possible to cross with dry feet using a convenient boulder just a little downstream from the steps. The stepping stones washed away were fairly big rocks and their loss is an indication of the power of water in what is normally a little stream.
