So, Ireland is interesting. Who knew it was part of the Caribbean -- islands, beaches, lush vegetation?

Agriculture is thriving....

There is some old stuff too --

Ross's castle, in Killarney, mostly restored....

An old abbey, in need of restoration....

An old graveyard (perfect spot for Trail-O'?)....

Some old orienteers (Mr. and Mrs. Bubo)....

And of course there is orienteering. Here was meet headquarters. Registration was at the trunk (the boot?), downloading at the passenger side....

And quite a civilized place, here's the route to the first control....

Tomorrow I think the terrain will be quite different, maybe more like this....

6 PM

orienteering 24:36 intensity: (7 @1) + (1:47 @2) + (11:26 @3) + (11:16 @4) 2.33 mi (10:33 / mi) +128ft 10:02 / mi
ahr:135 max:159 shoes: x-talon 212 #2

Most important stuff first -- another 21 controls, so the total is now 765/1000. Although perhaps I should only count spiked controls, in which case today would have only added 17....

Sprint course in Kenmare (the "long" course, nominally 3.4 km) on a map called "Rinn na gCros" -- I have no idea what this means, or why the C but not the g is upper case. A strange course, though given the terrain it was as good as could be done. And regardless of the merits of the course, I certainly enjoyed it.

Here's the course.
