On a bitterly cold and wet day at the Leinster Schools Orienteering Championships in Hellfire Wood, Rathfarnham, on Wednesday 22 March, Irish Junior Squad members, Ruairi Long (Rockbrook Park, Rathfarnham) and Eoin Riordan (St Gerard's School, Bray) battled against the weather and each other, in 5th-6th Year Boys (A) category, to finish way ahead of the rest of the field, with Long taking the title by over a minute from Riordan. In 1st Year Boys category, Riordan's brother, Cuan Riordan (St Gerard's School, Bray) had an even more exciting result, finishing in a dead heat with Eoghan Whelan (St Kieran's College, Kilkenny), for them to now share the championship title, whilst Ava Purcell (Skryne NS) won the 6th Class Girls race continuing her unbroken record of winning both the league and championship over the last two years.

The primary teams league table has now been updated, showing all the team results in the league. Congratulations once again to Skryne NS for sweeping the boards. However, if some other schools could come to all the events and compete individually, rather than in pairs, they could give Skryne a good run for their money. For instance, St. Anne's NS, Shankill's teams did very well in St. Anne's Park and Burrow NS, Sutton's teams had very good results in Corkagh Park. Maybe next year!

Another large entry for our second primary schools event, which takes place in St. Anne's Park, Raheny on 16th November next and an opportunity for all who come to view the fantastic wood sculpture, (see right), created by tree sculptor, Tommy Craggs, on an old tree that had to be cut down. All the varied wildlife in the park was sculpted on the piece with the aid of a chainsaw!

Our first Post Primary schools event was held today in Marlay Park, Rathfarnham. Another huge turnout from Castleknock CC and glad to see Dundalk Grammar School returning, having missed out all last year's events. Take a look at our RESULTS page for all today's results and League tables.

Just 3 days to go until our first Post Primary event of the year in Marlay Park. Most of our regular schools have again entered but, sadly
for the students in St Kilian's CS, Bray, they can't make it. Their teacher, Terry Lawless, who has been bringing them since we started these events,
has moved on to newer pastures but we're all hoping another teacher there can take up the orienteering banner in time for our next event!
Final Details, Startlist and School Lists are now uploaded on the Events Details page.
28 September 2016
Excellent day's orienteering today for our first Primary schools event in Marlay Park, Rathfarnham. On a gorgeously sultry autumn day, over 400 5th and 6th class boys and girls stole away from their classrooms, into the outdoors, and navigated their way around our easy courses, in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. Take a look at our RESULTS page for today's results and League tables.
24 September 2016
