Summer League #10: Ballyannon Wood, Midleton Tuesday July 11th

Post date: Jul 07, 2017 2:24:56 PM

The final competitive event in the CorkO Summer League will take place at Ballyannon Wood in Midleton on Tuesday July 11th.

Ballyannan Wood is a beautiful mature mixed woodland located at the end of Dyers Road in Midelton on the Owenacurra Esturary. It is a relatively small wood with a very extensive network of paths. The similarity between a number of these paths often causes confusion and one junction in the centre of the wood has six such paths off it. It might be beneficial to have a compass on hand to aid navigation and relocation!
