CorkO 2024 Summer League

CorkO 2024 Summer League

It's that time of year again when the evenings are long and bright and there's now more time to play outdoors and no better way to while away an evening that at a CorkO Summer Orienteering League event. We are back and will be coming to a forest or park near you real soon. So it is now time to root out your o-shoes and dust off your SI card and get ready for some wood and parkland adventures.

Each week we will be orienteering in a different forest or park in and around Cork city and county. If your are looking for a healthy, fun, outdoor activity to fill the long summer evenings then why not encourage your family, friends or colleagues to take part and enjoy a fun evening in the woods. Beginners and families are always welcome, and we will have someone on hand at each event to show you the ropes.

So why not get outdoors and join us for some evening orienteering. Keep reading for further details on this year series.
