JWOC 2018

As we welcome back our EYOC athletes, we are waving goodbye and Good Luck to our JWOC athletes.

The team that will be representing Ireland at the Junior World Orienteering Championships in Hungary from the 8th to the 14th July are:

Conall Whelan

Ruairi Long

Zac O’Sullivan Hourihan

Emer Perkins

Eadaoin McCavana

Clodagh Moran

Arguably one of the toughest Orienteering competitions out there, JWOC sees the best Juniors in the world compete on tough courses designed to test every physical and mental ability the athletes have.

Many, many thanks to Paul O’Sullivan Hourihan who is the Team Manager travelling with the team, without whom the team could not go! And to Mike Long for his invaluable assistance and guidance.
