The next Setanta Leinster League Orienteering event will be on Sunday 28th April in Oakwood.

The usual 7 courses are on offer.

The terrain is mixed, semi-open and rough open, runable and slow forest, and open mountain side where there are many boulders and interesting contour detail. There has been some recent felling and the map has been updated to reflect this. Only the technical, longer courses will have controls on the open mountain.

For all courses, the underfoot conditions in the forest will probably be quite wet, with some debris from felled trees.

Courses
Start times are from 11:00 to 13:00.
Courses will close at 15:00.
The courses are as approximately as follows:-
