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.

short hike but amazing
by fatredline  7 Jul 2014
Bypassed Newcastle for this one headed toward tullymore forest park then the mourne high scenic route which is on the left further on up the road there's a car park near fofanny dam its on the mourne activity map my new found bible I think the route goes through some private land but its easily enough navigated just walk your way up to the mourne wall you can see it from the car park near enough and follow left once u get near the top there's some great views of Ben Crom reservoir there is also some tough gradients to the summit very rocky but totally worth the view into the mournes from the east got caught out in a hail and thunder on the way down was my first experience of a mountain storm.
