There are several townlands named Glinsce in the west of Ireland (anglicised as Glinsk, Gleensk or Gleesk). Several, though not all, are in rather remote valleys or ravines, of which the ravine N of this peak is a fine example. The name is obscure but may refer to a valley difficult of access. The remains of a signal tower are located SE of the summit. Walks: for a cliff-top route from Porturlin to Belderg, passing near Glinsk, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 78-79.   Glinsk is the 1041th highest place in Ireland.

Yes just like Porturlin this hill can be the start or finish of a fantastic coastal walk and parking for two cars is available at F9499141027 A and by crossing the fence you will pass a very old derelict house on the way to the summit. Please be advised that the coastal walk contains a number of fences you need to cross. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/954/comment/18558/
