Despite what it says in the details for the 3ROC Phoenix Park event, the first “Dublin by Night” event this year, is in fact the Ajax night-O in St. Anne’s Park, Raheny, taking place next Saturday, Jan. 7th.


The area is mixed park/woodland which is mostly runnable.


Parking: The St. Anne’s Tennis Club car park. The car park is opposite the junction of All Saints Road and Wade’s Avenue. The car park is in two sections and registration will be the SW corner of the lower car park (furthest from the entrance). Note that the entrance and exit to the car park are one-way.
