Leinster Champions – Well done!
Congratulations to 3ROC’s prizewinners at yesterday’s Leinster Championships at Carraig na Seabhac in Co. Wicklow:
Clodagh Moran (W12), Cliona McCullough (W20), Mary O’Connell (W45), Ronan Cleary (M50), Pat Flanagan (M65), Trina Cleary (W65).
On a difficult day for orienteering with very windy and wet conditions, and challenging courses through patches of scattered forest and boulder-strewn heathery mountainside, anyone who finished their course was a winner. Unusually, the conditions improved in the afternoon in time for the prizegiving and the control collectors.
See the results and routes here.
Thanks to Ajax for organising a challenging Leinster Championships on a new Pat Healy map, in what must have been a difficult area to work with – none of it easily accessible.
