The ninth and penultimate competitive event in the CorkO Summer League will take place at Moanbaun Wood near Watergrasshill on Tuesday July 9th.

The landscape in Moanbaun Wood is mixture of semi-open forest, rough undergrowth, and open forest with a good road network, many earth walls and some streams. If the last few summer league events in this area are anything to go by there are sure to be plenty of midge in attendance on the night. So midge repellent could be useful to pack when travelling to Moanbaun Wood.
