Walshtown Wood (East)

This particular area of Walshtown is new to orienteering even though it is on the 1987 map. 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. 

The map is at 7,500 scale with 5M contours.


The road running by the wood is extremely narrow so parking will be on the road 500 meters from the start finish area. 


Turn left in the middle of Middleton main street on the Dungourney road, Dungourney is 10k along a good road.  In Dungourney take the Fermoy road, the event is only a further 5k along this road, we will signpost major junctions.
