Cabinteely Park – June 30th (Tuesday evening)

Cabinteely Park Orienteering

Cabinteely Park Orienteering

GEN is running a ‘Come and Try it’ event in Cabinteely Park as part of a series of Tuesday evening events.

Suitable for:
Accompanied children (4 years +), Novices with no navigation experience (ramblers, runners, outdoor enthusiasts etc). Buggies: parents with buggies should justabout manage the short course, but it’s mostly on grass with a few forays into the woods, so it won’t be easy.
You don’t have to pre-enter or have any special equipment. If you haven’t been orienteering before read the IOA FAQ on http://www.orienteering.ie/frequently-asked-questions.
If you have never orienteered or navigated before you are very welcome – just ask for some advice and guidance from any of the event officials and we will be happy to help.
The weather is currently looking nice. Tea & biscuits will be available, free to any participants. Toilets are located at the car park (€0.20c coin operated).

Start Times:
You can start any time between 6pm and about 7pm.

Courses:
Short: 1.6km – ideal for completely novice navigators, children (4+ years accompanied, 10+ alone)
Long: 3.7km – ideal for children 14+, adults with no navigation experience

Map:
1:2,500 scale, printed on waterproof paper

Cost:
€5 for seniors, €4 for children, unwaged, 65+

Directions:
Turn off the N11 at Cornelscourt, heading SW for the M50. Turn up Cornelscourt Hill Road. After 300m take the first left at the roundabout onto Park Drive. Continue straight for 400m until you reach the car park for Cabinteely Park. Park here and walk into the park – registration is in front of Cabinteely House.
