  • Start-times: 11 – 1pm

  • Map Notes:
    • A faint path on the Yellow course has been taped
    • There has been a considerable amount of burning on the west side of the main Brockagh ridge
    • Some dark green areas of the map are gorse that was almost impassible, but having been burnt can now be crossed.
    • There are some faint new tracks that have not been mapped, and there are a number of firebreaks that have been cut (wide stripes where heather was cut very short). These are very visible from a distance, but are not mapped.

Thanks to the National Parks and Wildlife Service and Coillte for granting permission to use their land.
