Colligan woods results

Emma making Gran proud
Full results for the league event held at Colligan wood last Sunday are posted on the IOA website and the Wato blog.
The jury met to consider the misplacement of one control but agreed not to change the results. Any volunteers to remap the offending area of the map where Coillte have recently been felling alongside?
Andrew Pim held off the challenge of Agris Kraminis from CorkO on the Blue course. Jim Callnan got the better of Liisa Honkasaari on a competitive green course. Ciara Silby took the light green courses. Ben Schneiders pipped Kyle Sullivan and Emma Pim on the red  course which featured 18 W/M 12 to M/W 14s. Zane Kramina won the yellow course.

Last call for anyone interested in the exciting weekend of orienteering next weekend.
