Fermanagh Orienteers organise the Junior Home Internationals
In 2011 the Junior Home International was held in Northern Ireland and the Orienteering Foundation gave a grant to the organisers, Fermanagh Orienteers. The organisers explain how this helped them to involve the local community:
… The teams came together on the Saturday evening for a meal followed by the prize giving. The individual event had taken place at the local Marble Arch Global Geopark and the manager presented the prizes. This was followed by a ceilidh. On Sunday the relay prizes were presented by the manager of the Brownacre Leisure Centre. The facilities of the centre were available to competitors for changing and showers. Each competitor received a micro-towel as a keepsake of the event (and hopefully a useful item to have in the kit bag). A grant for prizes, towels and ceilidh was awarded by the Orienteering Foundation which enhanced the event.
