Thanks to all who travelled long distances to take part - apparently many other parts of the country enjoyed sunshine this morning! The weather each year at Kilworth is a lottery. This year brought fog, which forced our orienteers to keep careful map contact and probably saved the planner from a scolding for setting shorter-than-usual courses! After downloading, our runners feasted on hot drinks and baked goods from Rosemarie O'Sullivan-Hourihan's Christmas Kitchen, with donations going to the Irish Junior Orienteering Squad. I would like to thank Rosemarie and her helper bakers for once again adding to the festive atmosphere at this year's race. It was also a pleasure to welcome members of the Defence Forces Orienteers and former member of CorkO and Southern Orienteers Timmy Morrissey, whose daughter Niamh represented 1 BAR DFO today.

Thanks to the Defence Forces for allowing us to use this unique area once again this year. Special thanks are owed to Paul O'Sullivan-Hourihan for liaising with the staff at Kilworth Camp, for controlling the event and indeed for putting out all the controls. Thanks to Gerald Duffy for signage and to Liam O'Brien, Willie Fitzgerald and the Midleton CBS boys for control collection. Thanks also to Daithi Power for manning the starts.

Well done also to the winners of the Munster League, which concluded today. The final league table is available here:
