The second event in the Cork Orienteering Club Cork League will take place on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 23RD at WALSHTOWN WOOD near Dungourney.

The map has a good network of tracks and rides together with an amount of feature detail in some parts, in other places it has a large area of open woodland intersected by a single forest road with very sparse ground movement or feature detail. A compass may be beneficial in these areas.

Beginners, 3.5km
Improvers, 3.8km
Short Technical, 5.5km
Long Technical, 8.5km

This event will use electronic punching.

Competitions can start any time between 11:30am and 12:30pm

The road running by the wood is extremely narrow so parking will be on the road 500 meters from the start/finish area. As always we'd encourage you to car pool if you can.

From Main Street in Midleton turn North-East on to the R627. Travel approx. 9km on the R627 to the village of Dungourney. At the Northern end of the village, take the LEFT-hand fork in the road, signposted for Fermoy and Castlelyons. Travel approx. 5km along this road to reach the forest. The roads around the area are narrow, so please obey the parking officials when parking your car.
