Kilkenny Craic Weekend
Join us for a weekend of orienteering in County Kilkenny. Both days or just one, you chose. Both days have courses suitable for beginners. On Saturday 26th April, the venue is Castlecomer Discovery Park with the usual range of blue to yellow courses
Strokestown House, Roscommon
ROCHESTOWN WOODS, Rochestown, Cork City
Malahide Castle, Dublin
In addition to the relay there will also be a normal orienteering event with three courses available, long, medium, and short. Starts for these courses will be from 11.00 until around 1.00 PM. All are welcome to take part. The short course will be very suitable for beginners.
The Amayzing Mays won the relay event last year in Newbridge House. Who will challenge them this year? The Shorts, O’Boyles, O’Cléirighs, Longs, Walley/Kearns, McCavanaghs, McCulloughs, O’Connell/Morans, or Quinns? Unlike last year the legs will be long, medium, and short, with a twist on the long leg. The Malahide map has also been updated for the event with some previous out of bounds area now open.
There will be prizes for the best team and best family team.
