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.
