Hey Folks,

Hope your new year has gotten off to a great start.

Here at CorkO we will be kicking off our 2016 orienteering year in Moanbaun Wood, Watergrasshill on SUNDAY JANUARY 17TH with the third round of our ongoing Cork League.

We hope you can join us on Sunday and help get our orienteering year off to a great start. There will be courses to suit all, from beginners to experienced orienteers. New participants are always welcome and we will have club members on hand to explain everything and help get you started. Just a reminder that if you do plan on bringing a group to this event we would be grateful if you could let us know in advance.

The wood is about 3km East of Watergrasshill. If travelling from Cork city, exit the M8 Dublin motorway at Watergrasshill (at junction 17, BEFORE the toll), use the bridge to cross over the motorway, turn left, and after 500m take the right turn for Leamlara/Kartworld. Follow this road for 3.5km.

From Fermoy/Mitchelstown/Cahir, exit the M8 just after the toll, go straight through the roundabout and take the left after 100m (signposted Leamlara/Kartworld). Follow this road for 3.5km.



Parking on the left side of the road only. Currently the grass verges are very wet with surface water. People should take care when parking.

Hope to see you there,
