Thanks to CorkO

A huge thanks to Cork Orienteering Club, they have generously donated the proceeds of the Kilworth event in December to the Irish Junior Squad. This added to the Cake Sale proceeds to bring the total to €500. This donation is very much appreciated by the Junior Squad and will be put to good use in 2018.

Physical Training

From the surveys I’ve done over the last few months, many Juniors have asked for help with their physical training.  And ultimately there’s no replacement for miles, or KM’s. I asked John Riordan to help me with this, as it is not my area of expertise.  He has very kindly put a lot of thought and effort into generating the below Physical Training outline, with some caveats:
