The first event of 2016 will take place on the slopes of Slievecoilltia, the eastern side of Kennedy park in County Wexford on Sunday
17th January. Starts will be from 11 until 1. Car parking in the main
carpark at Kennedy Park. Please walk to the gate opposite the main
entrance for registration and starts. Toilets are located at the
interpretative centre. The playground will be open but unfortunately no
cafe. I can recommend the Dunbrody cafe in New Ross for lunch. There will be short, medium and long courses on offer. Please let me know if you are bringing a group to ensure enough maps. This is an excellent opportunity to continue with Operation Transformation and in preparation for the forthcoming schools events
