Directions to Leinster XC League Round 1
Bunclody is easy to find on Google maps or SatNav, but it’s worth pointing out that the best route from Dublin and all points north is the M7/M9, and not the N11 unless you’re based in Wicklow.
Starting at the Red Cow follow the M7/M9 out of Dublin. When the M7 and M9 diverge be sure to keep left and take the M9 signposted Waterford, Carlow, Kilkenny. Next take Junction 5 off the M9 signposted Carlow South/Rosslare/Enniscorthy. Keep left at the slipway roundabout.
You are now on the N80. Drive for 15-20 mins, passing through the village of Ballon. Driving down the hill into Bunclody take the right turn towards Mt Leinster opposite Supervalu. Race location is 5 km out this road at the first Coillte forest entrance.
