Orienteering improves concentration

The calendar continues to be busy this weekend.

Night orienteering continues this Saturday evening in Ballyward (over 16’s only) with the usual staggered start times again this week.

Sunday brings three events all with courses to suit every level from beginners to the most experienced orienteer. If you are participating in Operation transformation we will have a course for you too, it’s a lot more interesting than a walk! Orienteering is a unique sport that can cater for all levels in the one place at the one time!

Full details for every event can be accessed via the links below, any queries can be answered by the organisers or message via facebook or

Thinking of bringing a group? Please let organisers know in advance so we can ensure we have enough maps for you!
