Dunno about Glenboy. If your willing to get locked in. Go to the jumps. But also there is about 7 jumps one after another on the Cavan stage about a mile from Moneygashel church heading toward Glangevlin.. Its much of a muchness. Likewise with Murley and Fardross

Firstly Anto i'm refering to Jumps on Cavan Stage.
These were never ran before. Its max attack toward Cavan Jumps Its about 3/4 of mile walk form Easy access. I'm checking another point of access over the weekend to see. If it's accessable its right beside jumps.

Glenboy Jumps take alot of Walking. Alot of Bogland. Wear Wellies or waiders.

Is that the forestry road your on about? Drove the stage and noticed it alright and it brings you right to the jumps.

On stage 2 caven is it possibe to park your car onthe main road and walk to the jumps through the start of the stage or would you have to walk through the fields.Could you stay for the 2 runs then get to stage 8

The Aughnasheelin stage is great. Just drove it today and theres at least 5 inches of snow on the road at the booster station. Still not sure where to go on it though, don't want to get locked in.

Jonathan Rooney

Ruaidhri Nash
25-01-2009, 18:05
4 hours is the recomended time for closing
it's not guaranteed at 3 hours u will be caught out. so u can all square up and give rooney a big haymaker when u see him lol

anto
25-01-2009, 18:11
