The blog hasn't been updated since Jukola. This was mostly due to CNOC going to the far reaches of Europe and the World in search of World Championship glory, as well as getting distracted by hard winter training.
To try sum it up in a few lines.
WOC Team went to France. It was technical as can be seen below!
Ruairi (28th LongQ), Seamus (25th SprintQ), Niamh (27th MiddleQ, 19th SprintQ, 24th Relay) all ran but we didn't have the success of Norway.
CISM World Militarys, Brazil. Orla, Ray and Colm went. Orla ran very well. Ray broke his leg and Colm miss punched.
WOC Tour. A selection of juniors travelling to sample the tricky french terrain.

Since the end of the summer, CNOC have being running in all the usual events.
Fingal Scatter Series, Local races and Leinster Leagues.
The Lenister League wrapped up last week at the final CNOC event that was held in Stradbally. (Waiting for a report).
The over all league can be found here http://orienteering.ie/results/leagues/show_table.php?league=Leinster+Autumn+Series&date_from=09%2F11&date_to=12%2F11&best_of=3
CNOC only had 3 runners running the required 3 races to score in a League.
Seamus O'Boyle 3rd
Ruairi Short 4th
Regina Kelly 5th (2nd Female)
CNOC had a massive impact on the Senior Home International.
The teams CNOC members were
M20 Conor Short (4th), M21 Hugh Cashel (8th), Ruairi Short (14th), Colm Hill (15th), Seamus O'Boyle (17th), W20 Deirdre Ryan (9th), W21 Ruth Lynam (14th), Regina Kelly (20th).
The following day, Seamus redeemed himself by getting back first of the three Irish relay teams.
Deirdre (as well as Niamh Corrbett) deserve special mention for stepping up an age class and running well in what were very long Long Distance races.
In the JHI, CNOC had 3 runners.
Caoimhe O'Boyle finished an awesome 2nd in W14 (9sec off winning!) followed closely by Siobhan Delaney in 6th. Deirdre Ryan finished 14th in W18.
In the VHI (no jokes please), Ruth Lynam was our only runner. She finished 3rd in W55 (and was also the only person to run at all three Home Internationals!... again)
Next up on the Irish Calender are the NightO races. CNOC are organising the final one on the Curragh on the 11th of February. Before that, we have a local event in Donadea on the 22nd of January.
CNOC's 3rd event of the Spring is on the 1st of April, the weekend before the JK in Scotland!
