Changeable weather at Tramore

Well done to John Casey and his team who braved the elements to put out the courses for the Munster league event at Tramore. This was the first time the new dump area had been stitched with the main dune section. It led to some interesting changes of scale!

Juniors representing Ireland



Congratulations to Ciara Silby, Eoghan Whelan and Jordan Pim who helped the Irish juniors successfully see off the Welsh to finish 3rd behind the powerful English and Scots at the recent Junior Home Internationals.


Woodstock wanders

Woodstock was the venue for a number of recent events.
First off was the schools training in which 500 young people took part. Thanks to the usual team led by Norman and Elizabeth Storey and Sally Silby. They were ably supported by Brid Casey, Liisa Honkasaari, and several TY students from Newtown school.









Next up was the regular club event on the Sunday....









.......followed the following week by the launch of a permanent orienteering course. Thanks to Norman and Elizabeth from the club, Pat Healy mapper and John Delaney head gardener from Woodstock for their help in getting this up and running.
