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.
