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.

Happy Valley Hike
by hbowman  22 Aug 2010
I climbed this mountain today for the 4th time, but decided to approach it from different angle. Started off from the Happy Valley car park (293296 C) and followed the path, beside a lovely stream up to the Mourne wall at the saddle between Slieve Meelmore and Meelbeg. Before the saddle, the wall from the Happy Valley car park turns sharply left. It is possible to climb the mountain by following the wall. However, the gradient is quite steep and, more importantly, one does not get the decent view towards Ben Crom, Binnian and Lamagan instantly. So, upon reaching the wall, we crossed the stile and turned left towards Meelmore. For anyone thinking about this route for the first time, don't forget to turn around and enjoy the views towards Doan, Silent Valley and Knockchree. Upon reaching the summit nice views were to be had towards Slieve Bernagh, Brandy pad, Commedagh and Donard. Above all, the view towards Lough Island Reavy Reservoir is stunning from Slieve Meelmore. I think Slieve Meelmore is probably the best mountain in the Mournes to study the reservoir from. Returned back the way we came. 5km walk in total.
