SEVO welcome you to the woodlands adjacent to Tintern Abbey, Saltmillls, Co. Wexford.

The area has not been used for an orientering event in the recent past. (unless you were draggged there  by Shielbaggan OEC in your youth!)

There will be 4 courses on the new map.

Long 5.3 km (optimum close to 7km) with 23 controls

Medium Technical 3.9 km (straight line) with 19 controls (enter Medium on the listing)

Medium Park 4.3 km (suitable for parkrunners, less technical) with 22 controls (enter medium long on the listing)

Short 2km with 12 controls

All maps are at 1 to 7500 scale and will be printed on waterproof paper at A4 size.

Entry via the OI website.

Free parking will be adjacent to the Abbey. Take care on the access road through the farmland from the main entrance, there may be runners crossing the road.

The only public toilets are at the main entrance carpark area and on the course (close to the finish).

There are no refreshment facilities.
