Tymon.jpgTymon park is a typical Dublin urban park with a mix of forested areas and open playing fields. There are three groups of lakes and some hills. The dominant feature is the M50 motorway which bisects the park into two roughly equal halves. This event starts in Tymon Park West on Castletymon Road. The map scale is 1:10,000, with 5m contour intervals.
Please print your crontrol descriptions or use the ones that are printed on the front of the map. There will be no loose control descriptions at the event.

The long course crosses the motorway using the footbridges, the other courses stay within Tymon Park West.
