Why Cruagh Wood has the parking hours it has.
Recently before a club walk we couldn't get into Cruagh Wood in the Dublin Mountains because it was locked. This was just before the 25th. That issue was before this one:

" As some might have heard, there was an unfortunate incident over the Christmas period in and around the car park in Cruagh, which up until now has been open on a 24 / 7 basis. The incident happened during the night between Christmas eve and day, Joyriders in a stolen mini jeep entered the car park and managed to get the jeep into part of the forest before setting it on fire. The Dublin Mountains Partnership having discussed the issue and have decided on the following course of action, the car park will have to be closed at night (4 pm) this will commence from the 16th January, this is to give people notice that is going to happen (a lot of regulars). The local Coillte forest worker will do this during the week and the Dublin Mountains Partnership Rangers will open and close during the weekend . Wayfarers and anyone else using this car park should be aware of this so as to not end up having a car locked in the car-park overnight. This is only a temporary solution until a more permanent one has been reached." Information from Jesper Peterson of Coilte.

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 4 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
