Sign near summit of Seahan (Expand pics)
Quandary over Quads
When doing the Seefin to Seahan circuit in Wicklow last weekend I parked at O063 170 just past the entrance to the rifle range. I haven’t walked here since the middle of last year, and the first thing to strike me was a mound of illegally dumped rubbish at my parking spot. (I subsequently rang PURE and gave them relevant information). Also what struck me was the sound of quad bikes approaching through the forest. This area has been plagued with quad bikes and they have ripped up the summit area of Seefingan and Corrig, as well as deliberately spraying walkers with dirt.
Three quads appeared in the trees beside me and they dismounted and took apart the fence so they could drive through. They watched me while they did this. As they were wearing helmets I’m not sure if they were grinning or grimacing at me. When they got through they made an effort to repair the fence before tearing off down the road.
Later leaving the summit of Seahan I came across this sign which wasn’t here last year. At least it makes things clear about quads on the hills. But what about quads in forests, dismantling fences etc?
