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 143rd highest place in Ireland.

Well Adrian, far be it from me, but Cork or Kerry, that seems to be that. While we are on the subject of resolutions, Gribster and your piece on Meelmore - a precisely accurate account and your enthusiasm to promulgate it is impressive. I am sure this is an oversight but do you also have proposals regarding the challenge walk title. Perhaps the “Mourne Under and Over Sevens” or “The Mourne up to Seven Sevens” or of course “The Mournes Six Sevens” and we could just keep Meelmore out of it. What do you think?
