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.
