The next Leinster League Orienteering event will be on Sunday 28th April in Oakwood, organised by Setanta. The usual 7 courses are on offer. The terrain is mixed, semi-open and rough open, runable and slow forest, and open mountain side where there are many boulders and interesting contour detail. There has been some recent felling and the map has been updated to reflect this. Only the technical, longer courses will have controls on the open mountain. For all courses, the underfoot conditions in the forest will probably be quite wet, with some debris from felled trees.

Courses Start times are from 11:00 to 13:00.

Courses will close at 15:00. The courses are approximately as follows:-

Course Length-km Climb-m Controls
Yellow 1.0 25 8
Orange 2.0 65 10
Red 2.7 115 13
Light Green 2.3 85 13
Green 3.4 145 15
Blue 5.0 225 17
Brown 6.8 245 23


Adults EUR 8.00
OAP/Unwaged/Student/Child EUR 5.00
Family EUR 20.00

SI Rental is EUR 2.00 for those who don\'t already have one.

Parking Enter the forest road at O 036 022 and parking is about 2-3km in on the forest road.  The start and finish are close to registration.

Directions From Hollywood take the R756 towards the Wicklow Gap, the forest entrance is about 100m past Ballinagee Bridge. From Laragh, take the R756 towards Hollywood, the forest entrance is 5km after the Wicklow Gap, just before Ballinagee Bridge.

We are all doing our bit for the environment and Setanta Orienteers encourage you to remember to bring your own reusable cup to the refreshment tent after the event.
