Orienteer like it is 1971 !

Bishopstown Orienteering Club will be holding a commemorative event in Thomastown wood, Kilfinane, Co Limerick on Monday 31st October 2022. It was hoped to have held it last year to mark the 50th anniversary of the first ever Orienteering event in this area. Unfortunately due to the pandemic restrictions last year it was not possible to hold the event as intended

The original event was Organised and planned by Willie Cunningham for the Kilfinane Development Association. Earlier this year Willie Cunningham passed away. Before he did he shared some old documents from those early years.

In memory of Willie and to mark that original occasion BOC will hold a once off event.

Details on entry, courses etc are at the link below. The event is free of charge, but you should pre-enter.

In the meantime have a look at some of those shared documents – you may even recognise some names. Irish Orienteering History
