Vehicle Security after break-ins to vehicles parked in the Comeragh Mountains - Click for advice from the Gardaí.

Car crime in the uplands is typically opportunistic and fast, with most incidents taking place in the afternoons,
between Thursday and Sunday.
The Gardaí have appealed to people parking in the uplands to take the following measures to protect their vehicles:

  1. Avoid leaving bags, clothing etc on view within the vehicle;
  2. Open the glove box, and where possible, the lid on the boot, to show there is nothing in the vehicle;
  3. Remove portable sat navs including cradle and suction pads; also wipe any suction marks off the windscreen;
  4. If you must leave valuables in the boot, put them in before you arrive at the parking location;
  5. Secure the vehicle (23% of these thefts last year were from unlocked vehicles);
  6. Report all break-ins or damage to vehicles;
  7. Watch for, and report, suspicious any activity by dialling 999 / 112.

Open Day.

Calling anyone interested in hillwalking.We will be holding another open day on Sunday 27th of April. Meet as normal at the Hypercenter car part at 10am.
