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.

There seem to be some mix-up about the height of Slieve Meelmore, as csd has noticed below. 704m on the 1:25K map and no marked height on the 1:50K. The point where the 704m spot height is shown seems to be at the little tower rather than at the summit, which is clearly about 50m south (see picture). A GPS reading at the summit however gave 694m and Paddy Dillon gives 680m. If you check the contour rings on the 1:25K there is obviously some mistake as the highest contour ring is 680m, making the 704m spot height impossible. As well as mapping problems, the name is rather odd too, Slieve Meelmore being lower than Slieve Meelbeg, but that's another can of worms...
