Cork Orienteering Club will organise the 18th Shamrock O-Ringen in 2013 on the June Bank Holiday weekend June 1st - 3rd in the Crohane area, near Killarney.

Day 1 will be at the Black Lakes, Day 2 at Crohane Mountain and Day 3 at Crohane Lake. These are superb technical areas which have previously been used for a World Cup event. New access routes to Day 1 should offer new planning possibilities while the areas for Days 2 & 3 will see some significant map updates of technical forest which has now opened up after several years thinning.

The event website has now been launched at:

Online entries will be accepted by Fabian4 at

The event centre will be at Killarney Racecourse & a full social programme is envisaged, including the Shamrock Sessions, BBQ & Quiz.

We look forward to welcoming you all there and would be delighted if you could spread the word.

Make an extra long weekend of it and travel for a Friday evening sprint-O event organised by KerryO at nearby Ross Island (walking distance from event centre)

Lots more details & information will be added to the official website over the next few months.
