RE: Where not to park in Wicklow
I have to agree with the previous comments on parking. It is the worst feeling in the world to return from a days rambling to find some clueless idiot has broken into your car, sometimes doing more damage than the value of the goods stolen.
These criminals steal not only our valuables but also our trust.
I would agree that the time has come, unfortunantly to look at putting in CCTV cameras (the anti litter crowd have them in the most remote and unlikely places).
This may not stop these cowards, but it may put them off. The old adage applies:
Leave nothing of value in your car
Lock and protect everything
Always report an incident to the authorities
Be vigilant and most of all spread the word if there is suspicious activity seen around where you have parked.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

Knocknacusha: There and back again
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Peter Walker 3 weeks ago.
You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...

Cooneen Hill: Very average

Nothing to add to simon3's directions. Like quite a few of the hills in North Tipperary, this one is through a Coilte forest track to begin with and then the tough push through some horrible groun...
