Urgent Request for Help -West Cork
I am wondering if any of our members live in or about West Cork/South Kerry, or might have reason to visit there in the near future? Yesterday, 4th June, I parked my car at Healy's Pass and cycled my mountain bike down to Adrigole and then headed towards Glenngarriff, turning left before Glengarriff on to a very minor road to get under the col between Gowlbeg Mountain and Sugarloaf Mountain.I hid my bike by lying it down flat about three or four meters in from the road behind some bushes. I took the liberty of pulling a bit of long grass to afford extra camouflage. I then headed off over the mountains back to Healy Pass BEFORE DRIVING BACK TO MEATH LEAVING MY BIKE WHERE I PUT IT THAT MORNING! Totally forgot about it. The exact co ordinates of where I left it are: V 88450 51585
Now I am well aware that I am taking a risk in publishing these details because there is always the possibility that some evildoer will steal kidnap or murder my bike. But I happen to believe that 99% of the folks who read this stuff are good people so I'm prepared to take a chance. Its a black bike with some white streaks.. I'm looking for the Halfords receipt so that I can remember the name of it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I am aware that I could drive the 9 hour round trip to get it back but I still have not recovered from the last trip.
