Permanent Orienteering Courses
There are a number of permanent orienteering courses around the country, ideal for use by schools, scouts and family groups. These courses have been set up by various organisations e.g. Coillte or county councils, often with the assistance of local orienteering clubs.
Some venues provide the orienteering map free to download. In other cases there is a small charge and the map is available at the venue. If in doubt contact the venue directly.
