Introduction to Mountain Navigation


The club is running an in house Mountain Navigation / Skills course which aims to cover basic map reading and mountain / navigation skills, to serve as a good introduction for the beginner or as a refresher for the more seasoned walker.
The course is being given by Oisin, with the help of other experienced club members, and will take place over 2 indoor evening sessions in Greenhills School and 1 outdoor session on The Cooleys.

The dates are as follows :
Thursday 23rd February 7.00 - 9.00pm  Greenhills School.
Thursday  2nd. March    7.00 - 9.00pm          do.
Saturday   4th. March    10.00am - 3.30pm  Cooley Mtns.

The cost of the course is E 30.00. A 1 : 50000 O/S Map no. 29 plus comprehensive handout notes will be provided for each participant.
Course participants will need to supply their own compass. We recommend the Silva Type 4, though as this is quite expensive, the cheaper Karrimor Compass Size One from Sports Direct will suffice.
