Events up to Wednesday March 8th

 

There are events in Meath, Roscommon, Cork and Wexford in the coming week.

The event coming up on March 4th is a Meath Local Sports partnership/Fingal O event. It is not suitable for regular orienteers.
It is part of a sports taster series.

There will only be a easy Yellow level course on offer on the day, with a last start at 12.15pm, precisely. The participants will then proceed to GAA and Soccer .
Fingal intend to use these events as a lead in to our regular Meath Summer Series events at Dalgan Park and Dunshaughlin in June and the
Tuesday evening events in July and August.

They are intended to try to promote the sport in Co. Meath

The Strokes town, Seefin and  JFK Arboretum events are regular orienteering events and are suitable for beginners, just ask someone at registration and they will help you.

The schools event in Trabolgan Holiday village is hosted by The Irish Orienteering Schools Group and is a championship event for Munster schools.
