In 1971, Willie Cunningham organised what is believed to be the first event in Munster for the Kilfinane Development Association using a black and white, 6" to the mile map.
In commemoration of Willie Cunningham who passed away this year, BOC are marking his contribution to orienteering by rerunning that same event here on the same map. The control sites are as close as practical to the original control sites.

There is no charge for entry but there will be a collection box on the day in aid of Marymount hospice. Please pre-enter so that we will have enough maps on the day.

The following is a brief introductory video by Paul O'Sullivan-Hourihan
