Slaughter Hill Wicklow
Oil Spill

There was a recent oil spill on Slaughter Hill. This has brought about road conditions which are now treacherous for descending on a bike. Exercise extreme caution if riding out that direction in the near future. No sign of any remedial work being carried out so avoid the area. Thanks to Brendan McAllister for the heads up.
