Re - Walking into Trouble
Another place in Wicklow there was trouble was near Carrigshouk and Mullaghcleevaun East at O106156 (picture Feb 2006). This forestry entrance is typical of isolated car parking the length and breadth of Wicklow. A number of cars had glass broken and were burgled here.

And certainly I have seen exactly the sort of thing that Loz mentions near Ballinastoe. At Nowen Hill in Cork boyracer car (decrepit variety) pulls up at small forestry entrance apparently only interested in turning.

What to do? Share information - stay in touch. MV can certainly help with this and publicise the issue. Keep a photo of possible miscreants including number plates really would work wonders if subsequently a break-in occurred somewhere near. Further suggestions for MV welcome but remember we are a website not a representative body.

What not to do? Exaggerate the issue. I have been parking in remote areas sometimes with sizeable parties for thirty years and yes my vehicle was once broken into and yes around once in every few years a party member's was broken into or damaged. But there are parts of many Irish cities that a car wouldn't be safe for a day. And so what else not to do: give up hillwalking.

We followed sandman's route to the summit which is probably the best way to explore Knockalongy and its satellites. Gentle gradients but many eroded peat hags. Worth noting that the forest barrier...
