How to not get lost on the way to an orienteering event:
Hillwood is located in Monasterevin town. Travel south on the M7 and take
the exit for Monasterevin. Cross the motorway and turn left for
Monasterevin. Just as you come into Monasterevin take the left turn R417
South sign posted Kildangan / Athy. Hillwood is on your right hand side.
The event will be held in the last carpark on the right.
(so that's straight, left, right, left, straight, left, straight, last car park before bridge on the left...Ohh sorry I meant the right!)
