Rogaine Ireland 2021 CANCELLED

We regret to announce the cancellation of Rogaine Ireland 2021.
 
We had anticipated a relaxation of Covid 19 restrictions by early August to allow the event to run with only minor alterations to the usual running of the event. This now seems unlikely.
We are bound to run our events within the guidelines that SportingIreland have approved with the Irish Orienteering Association, through which we are affiliated with and cover our insurance. 
The guidelines are available here
 
Rogaine Ireland  2022 is scheduled for 18/19th June 2022. We look forward to welcoming you next year.

Wine and Chocolates / Christmas Walk

Hi All

Unfortunately we are not in a position to run our annual wine and chocolate orienteering event that was scheduled for this weekend. We will also not be staging our Christmas Walk on the 28th of this month either. Both these cancelations are due to the ongoing pandemic and associated restrictions. Sadly, I doubt if these cancellations are a surprise to anyone.

We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas, and here’s looking forward to next year with optimism.

Club Committee…
