Car Park at Mahon Falls
Hi pn_runner, I personally wouldn't leave my car parked anywhere along the road leading up to the Mahon Falls or at it's main car park overnight. I've only parked there over the winter when it's cold and snowy (and when you'd probably need winter tyres to get up). I have heard of numerous break-ins there over the years, especially over the summer. It's a bit of a risk in my opinion to leave your car there overnight. Hope this helps.

CaptainVertigo makes some good points about why this cross was cut down, distinguishing between vandalism and something done with purpose. I go part way with conormcbandon who characterises what ...

You may feel that I am ill qualified to comment at all on Knocknasliggaun since I have not yet been to its peak. In fact I have been up what is probably the best part of the mountain which hangs m...

So what was behind the Carrauntoohil Cross incident? Was it what people call "a random act of vandalism" ? Typically such attacks are perpetrated by opportunistic young hoodlums on their way home...
