Kilkenny Castle Permanent course launch

The grounds of Kilkenny Castle will be the venue on December 8th when a new permanent orienteering course will be launched by kind permission of the OPW.
The map has been surveyed by Pat Healy at 1;5,000.
The official launch by the Mayor will take place at 12 and will be followed by the final autumn short series race organised by WATO. 4 courses will be on offer: Long course 5.3 km and 25 controls; Medium course 4.0 km and 20 controls; Short course 2.6 km and 18 controls; and an additional Short/tracks only, for those with reduced mobility, which will be 1.7 km and 11 controls. All are welcome, young or old to come and try out this inclusive sporting activity. Anyone who is bringing a group should contact to ensure there are enough maps. Maps will be printed by Print 5.
Only a 10 minute walk from the rail station and close to MacDonagh junction shopping centre, combine shopping with your day out. Parking on the Castle road side of the grounds.
