Think most people may be unaware of it, so in case anyone is interested (I have no affiliation to FERMO BTW), there is a NI Colour Series event at Crossmurrin (near Marble Arch), this Saturday. Pre-entry is required, and is open until 18:00 on Thursday.

I had a look at this and then realised that the current covid guidelines don't support non essential travel to NI. Is my understanding wrong?

I did check before I entered and there didn't seem to be a problem. Now you've made me doubt myself so I'll have to go and check again. I also asked the organisers if there was any issues at their end with southern orienteers attending the event. They said that unless there was a change in the guidance there wouldn't be. Can you point me to the specific restriction you are referencing?

Ok, it's not completely clear, but it does look like travel to NI is still restricted until Jul. 18th. One sentence says travel in Ireland is unrestricted, but I suspect what it is intended to say, is that travel in the Republic of Ireland is unrestricted. Ah well, hopefully next time.

First sentence here

and it was recently reported in some print media.

Thanks Angus,

Somehow managed to miss that.
