Junior Selection Update

In light of the currently evolving situation with regard to the spread of coronavirus, the impact this is expected to have and resulting restrictions put in place in Ireland and internationally the selectors feel that the previously published selection criteria for Irish teams may need some adaptation.
Orienteering (and other sporting events) have been cancelled in Ireland until 29th March and the Leinster Championships have been postponed until the autumn.  There could be more disruption to events as the situation changes.  Please see the link below for the latest update from the IOF.

At this time it is very uncertain which if any of the selection events will take place and the selectors understand that athletes may be reluctant to travel to any events that do go ahead.  We do not advise either way, but there will be no negative implications for any athlete who decides not to go to a particular event.  We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt the selection criteria accordingly.  In the meantime, athletes should continue to train, and attend orienteering events where possible.
Stay fit, stay healthy and look forward to the next opportunity for some orienteering.
