Permanent Orienteering Courses at Griffeen Park; Ticknock; & Phoenix Park.

Griffeen Park: Provided by South Dublin County Sports Partnership and 3ROC. There are three courses which you can do at any time. They all start in the car park at the sports and recreation centre. You can do the courses as they are, writing down the third letter at each control to check that you were in the right place, or you can use the MapRun app which you can download to your mobile phone. This will register each control point automatically by GPS. Read all about it here. There’s a quick guide on the IOA website here.
