A burnt out car has been dumped in one of Offaly's top beauty spots.
The car is abandoned at the side of the road on the Offaly side of the Slieve Blooms on the R440, the road which runs from Kinnitty to Mountrath. It is very close to the area in the mountains where wild fires raged this summer.
As our pictures show, the inside of the car was totally gutted by the blaze. The tyres on the once white hatchback are melted while there is glass surrounding the car from where the windows blew out during the fire.
Offaly County Council have been made aware of the incident.
